Default Re: Gerry ****ey - the hardest puncher ever?

I'm sure ****ey's power was devastating, but I don't think that we ever saw him dispatch a truly durable fighter to warrant rating him as the hardest puncher ever.. While he certainly beat Norton and Lyle convincingly, those guys were thoroughly done for and had previously been stopped by lesser fighters.. These fights don't offer much in the way of a berometer.. Now, had he stepped in the ring with someone like Tex Cobb around 1981 and managed to score a knockout or force a stoppage, then we'd have something to work with...
