Re: Gerry Cooney - the hardest puncher ever?
During the early years of the Forman comeback on the old USA Tuesday night fights. In one of his pre fight interviews they were doing a little question and answer section and I remember Foreman clearly saying that Ronnie Lyle hit so hard Im going to track down the tape in my collection to see exactly what is was he said but im pretty sure it was that Lyle was the hardest puncher he ever faced. On the topic Cooney can totally bang and had very good power. But I feel as though Shavers, Lyle, Tua and Ruddock are a few HEAVYWEIGHTS off the top of my head that had a bigger punch then Cooney.
