Vitali isn't a dynamic, overly-concussive puncher but he is dealing out major punishment. He is a KO artist in his own right, just goes about it in a different manner.

I would have figured Bowe or Morrison.

True. Also, Brewer swings for the fences every time.

True I wonder if it was Brewster's left hook that Marcus is judging this by.
Every time I watch Wlad vs Brewster 1, I always feel like Wlad was out
on his feet after the first hook Lamon landed before the follow up hooks
and ko or tko I believe. Ill try to watch some fights, cause I would
like to hear about the power of Morrison's left hook and Bowe's jab
, uppercut, and right hand.

I think he fought Morrison in Morrison's last fight (ignoring comebacks) after testing positive for HIV. The fight was in Japan. I wouldn't be surprised if he just hit the mat after the first punch.

Brewster was definitely a huge puncher.
I'd like to see his fight with Clifford Etienne.
That's a guy with very dodgy chin outpointing a massive puncher. I don't remember Etienne as being particularly slick.

My first guess was Morrison...did he say anything else like who was the second hardest puncher, who was the best, the fastest etc etc. ?

Brewster his Wlad with a follow up left hook after he missed a right hand. That one punch ended the fight for all intents and purposes.

No he didn't. I was given a few bucks by Stacy to drive Marcus to Tahlequah to fight Paul Marinaccio. Marcus didn't seem really all that intested in boxing. I got the feeling that it was a way to make side money. He'd just go to a fight to get KO'd and make a few bucks.
I did ask him how he thought he'd do against Marinaccio, all he said was "I'm the opponent".
At that time he was a "striking coach" at a local MMA gym also. I'm not sure what his day job was. Maybe a striking coach gets paid pretty well, not sure. That is the first and last time I ever heard that term.
He is a big dude and would easily crush any citizen who fancied himself a badass. But as far as contending against the world's elites, his purpose was to come in and lose.Takes balls the size of a Zorb ball to go into the ring against the killing machines he faced.

True a lot of KO losses for the big guy, bu he seemed very lucent and not rattled at all. Perhaps this is one of the perks of losing fights by quick KO's.

Briggs would probably be one of the top I think.
I think Briggs may have the most 1st round KO wins than anyone in history.
When I had a facebook account Briggs was one of my friends (could it have been a fake Briggs account? yes it is the internet after all).
Anyway, this guy who I'm going to assume really is Briggs,
I put a comment on his wall about him possibly having the most 1st round KO's in history and he seemed surprised by that factoid.
Also he didn't seem to care, I guess that milestone is only impressive to me. LOL

Brewster even at his best was beatable but he had power even though it did not always show up

True. It usually seems to be the gym wars and the long gruelling fights that take their toll on a fighter's mental health. Glad to hear he's still in good shape.

Yes, he does possess the most first round KOs for what it's worth, but he's also stopped and rocked top heavies when he's landed on them, which at least proves that he has legit power at the world level, just not necessarily the skills to land it on the better fighters.

McCline's rep as a puncher comes mainly from what I read about him in the gym, as well as the fact that he dropped Sam Peter thrice, dropped Mago and rocked Arreola with what looked to be a fairly innocuous punch.
