That's like saying Harry Greb shouldn't be within a top 5 p4p list because he didn't have power, if there was a Hardest body puncher list Zale would definatley feature but for some reason lets say he had no power wouldn't him going to the body more often than most fighters the most i personally think and getting clean shots in make him a sure shot for it...
But still the fact is he did have power and did hit to the body a lot more than other fighters did (the most i believe, and with damaging hard punches) which equals a high rating among body punching lists and definatley not in the 30's and 40's...
