Re: Marciano Harder Hitter than Lennox Lewis
Very interesting comparison. At least this does indicate that Marciano was more likely to produce a knockout against a man of the same size and ability than Lewis was. Who hit harder outright is a bit more complicated, since it can be pointed out that Lewis' style was not as much oriented towards producing knockouts as Marciano's was. However, this does indicate that Marciano was at least in the same league as Lewis in terms of pure, straight-out power, and was, as you say, miles ahead of him in terms of pound-for-pound power.
