Besides Norton, every other man I've seen in those quotes won against Shavers.

Also it doesn't matter anymore as those fighters never faced recent powerhouses like Tommy Morisson (Mercer called him the hardest hitter), but I think that was before the Wlad fight.
Even if those opponents spoke the truth about Shavers, there are newer punchers.
And Steward whose opinion is very high has said Wlad has the most destructive power, and has never seen a guy with his KO power before. And citing a moment where Wlad knocked somebody out in the gym with a left hook... while that guy blocked the punch with his gloves.
