Default Hardest Hitters of the Last Ten Years?

I'd ask in the current boxing forum, but that forum consists of 1) Too many Mayweather threads and 2) Way too many posters who know nothing about the sport and are only there to bicker and be asinine. I prefer posters who know what they're talking about.

No divisonal barriers. Who?

If we're talking about absolutely the hardest, as opposed to p4p, I'd say Lewis or Wlad Klitschko

For his weight, Hamad was a monster puncher.

I'd go for Tszyu. He was the man in the late 90's to early 00's

Did you say the last 10yrs???Roy Jones comes to mind..Hell,I hate the ****a but he nearly KO'd Ruiz..That's some power.

And of course..the usual suspects...Lewis,Tua,Corrales,Trinidad etc.

Nearly KO'd???

He wobbled Ruiz for a split second, that's all. He didn't even go down nor was staggering around the ring! He was stunned, perhaps hurt, but far from nearly KO'd. Watch Ruiz vs Tua. That's being KO'd.
