Rahman could punch like an absolute beast with that right of his, as his near decaptiation of Lennox showed, but was so slow that I'm not sure if I'd be willing to put him above more explosive guys in terms of one punch power. Frank Bruno was a similarly heavy but ponderous hitter who amy well have punched with more brute force than a lot of more renowned hitters, but was too slow and stiff to really make that power count.

One older fighter whose power tends to get a bit overlooked I think is Ron Lyle. Very hard puncher who put everything into his power shots. Brutal right hand.
Power lifters, atleast olympic weight lifters have incredibly strong legs.
With the right punching technique they can blow you brain out.
Most power from punching comes from the legs.

360 pounds, if he hits you flush like the way Tua hit you.
It would drop Tex Cobb in a single hit.


He can dunk a basketball at 5'9'' 350lbs with no steps. He can do a standing back flip standing still. He has also jumped onto a 48'' plyobox with one step.
