As far as I know he has only 1 one punch KO on film.
Including his rather bad resume, he probably didn't punch that hard.
****ey's left-hook is described as one of the most powerful punches in boxing history. Foreman, Holmes, and Lyle all stated that ****ey's left was the hardest they had ever taken. It is also notable that Holmes had also previously fought Earnie Shavers
, and at the time stated Shavers had the most powerful blow he had ever received.
