Middleweight and JMW has a hell of alot of punchers occupying there, but you only stated LW, WW, and HW in the thread title...
Duran was a beast at LW..Im not underating his power..not in that division

Arguello is a good shout. Harder puncher at LW than Duran.

How many one-punch knockouts did Duran have at LW, Southpaw? What makes him such a super puncher?

I'm not saying he isn't dangerous. I'm saying there are others that should be considered harder punchers, which is what this thread is about.

Lightweight hardest puncher 1940-1990 [not the best fighter] Lew Jenkins bag of bones, but TNT puncher...
Welterweight---- Tommy Hearns [pure one punch dynamic right cross]
Heavyweight----1940 version of Joe Louis [lightning in a bottle]

Louis is a great choice...when he knocked you down 9 outa 10 times you didnt get back up!

People think Curtis Sheppard hit harder than George Foreman or Marciano?
