Exactly... should have read the comments before i commented i just couldn't believe the first few agreed kind of and needed to reply

Liston and Foreman were like that because Liston was treated like a thug and Foreman because he said the easiest way to deal with people was like he saw Liston do because nobody would mess with him,

Rocky Marciano said he didn't like boxing because of the ruthlessness he had to have and he was one of the nicest guys ever yet he hit like he did...

By your logic guys like Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis, David Tua, Max Baer, Tony Zale, Floyd Patterson should hit like sissies? because they didn't have the attitude your talking about....

And so i guess a guy like Pernell Whitaker had that attitude so i guess he must of had INSANE punching power i guess he just never wanted to use it ....
All of those guys were animals in the ring. Marciano was friggin ruthless as was Joe Louis, in the first 1-3 rounds David Tua was a pitbull on roids, Max Baer killed a guy because he got so mad at him laughing at him e.c.t. And I will never forget Patterson's slightly dark take on 'revenge' in his one interview about boxing

Do you somewhat agree with this? The biggest hitters I can think of (pfp), Ketchel, McClellan, Benn, Tyson, Gomez, Foreman all seemed to be pretty mean spirited and angry. How much do you reckon the emotional aspect and increased aggression plays in the punching power?
You've got to have the cash in the bank to back up the check that you write, y'know what I mean? Attitude is nothing without the necessary physical attributes that lend power.

He may have hated himself for hating Johansson so much for that rematch, but that version of Patterson makes you wonder how he would be rated today if he could have found it in himself to summon up that same cold fire in the rest of his fights. He was way too nice a guy, I think.

The question most of them seem to be pretty mean spirited and angry, he's talking about in and out the ring how would ketchel be known for being an asshole to people outside of the ring when he;s in it fighting, was Max Baer and asshole out of the ring? what about Tua? that's what the question is not in the ring

My coach calls it putting that extra "**** you" into your shots. I think it helps if you can genuinely enjoy hurting people, not just winning. It's a little sick but it's true :/

I agree.
If attitude is everything, then a 14 year old girl could punch as hard as George Foreman, if she has the right attitude.

My 14 year old son knocked me down twice just sparring, and I am an X fighter...But my son has what I call double power, he has KO power in both hands, ive never had that ( not to mention even though hes only just turned 14, hes bigger than I am....And your right when he shows attitiude he puts some real power behind his shots.
