Hearns and robinson also carried their punches up to 160,but even at 160 i still see Hearns as having the hardest single shot,witness roldan,hagler,duran and schuler. At 147 the cuevas KO is just monstrous,the best single shot in 147 history against an iron chin.
Then factoring in his impossible physical attributes and dimensions, incredible jab and high level of boxing skill to go with that best ever power, you must rate Ray Leonard extremely
high. Roberto Duran beats any welterweight in history H2H at their own zenith... He must've beaten someone unbelievably great.
