But has there ever been a great heavyweight puncher ?
Most these guys are just products of good matchmaking. Look at Shavers, Foreman, they struggled to put away guys who weren't even a tenth as tough as li'l Gene Tunney.
Half the time Foreman just pushed his opponents around until they'd have enough. Circus strongman stuff.
