Default Gerry Cooney - the hardest heavyweight puncher ever?

Cooney's one-punch power is extremely underrated, in my opinion. I think he may be the hardest-hitting heavyweight of all time. Some of his highlights include:

- Stopping Leroy Boone with a left hook to the liver. Boone went the distance with Earnie Shavers a couple months later.
- Knocking out Ron Lyle with a left hook to the midsection. This same hook also broke Lyle's ribs.
- Demolishing Norton in a more convincing fashion than Earnie Shavers.

Joe Bugner sparred with Cooney and said in a newspaper interview that Gerry's left was more powerful than Frazier's.

What do y'all think?
