I dont know if I'd put him in my top 10 heavyweights all-time, but Lennox Lewis would probably get in my list of the top 10 punchers.

I'd probably put him above Frazier as a puncher, for example.

But it's difficult coming up with a definitive list, so I wont.
Props for doing so though.

Think's Rockys power should be in the top 6 about and not at 9.

Pre Champship rein, He most often than not ko a man with one shot as the Layne and Walcott and Matthews fights show. Of couse once he won the title, he adopted a more wear them down style.

I would indeed put him over Ruddock imo.

Think Shavers is over rated in this regard, sure he kos journymen level, but once he got to the elite level, his power failed more often than not, were Marciano, Louis and Liston were a lot more consisted in this regard imo.

Frazier does not belong in the top ten imo.

Joe Louis punched harder than Dempsey. Louis mangled men's faces. He had awesome punching power. It's not a bad list, I suppose. Tyson had awesome punching power. I would move him up a bit. I can't argue with the first two.

Am not to keen on that list. Ruddock and Liston are to high and Louis is to low.

And he's a big Rocky fan.

A punchers list is one of the toughest list to come up with because of many varying intangibles.

A little fellow to consider.. Elley Bennett.. If he tagged you, he completely TAGGED you. A lot can be said... struggled against smooth boxers with footwork, yet dismantled anyone who stood toe to toe.. 40 KO's from 44 wins.

Nat Fliescher rated him the hardest puncher of his era.
