I think their punching power was of two different varieties. Witherspoon had a slower, heavier type of punch, whereas Sanders had fast precision. Both were effective, depending on the type of opponent they were fighting. I don't think there is any way to accurately gauge how hard either of them hit.

Yes Sanders was a faster snappier puncher, but I think Spoon was a much better fighter. Tubbs was pretty dam slick at his best, Sanders would have problems as Spoon did hitting him cleanly.

Probably true.

I don't know about you, but personally I think Corrie Sanders gets underrated around here though. I'm not trying to make the guy out to be a great fighter, but I do think he was better than some give him credit for.

I think Sanders does well enough in the first 2rounds before fading to be thoroughly outboxed and perhaps stopped late
Agreed, its hard to compare left hooks from Southpaw and Orthodox fighters but in terms of ability Tyson is better.

Sanders was never really a polished fighter. He had quick hands and good power but his technique and conditioning was always going to keep a level below top contenders.

Tubbs would box his ears off especially when Tony was at his best.
