It's been two years since he was killed and I think a lot of fans forget the tremendous raw punching power of Julian Letterlough. He was definitely one of the greatest punchers in the last 10 years.

Roy Jones should b on the list. He had amazing power at 160, 168 and even 175. He carried it up with him increasin in weight. He should b on the list as well

Good point. The thing about Jones is that he had so many other amazing attributes that they overshadowed his punching power but he was one hell of a puncher.

I remember in his fight with John Ruiz at the end of one of the rounds he landed a right hand that brokes John's nose an wobbled him. I think had the bell not rang there Roy wold have been able to throw a combo and put him down

If you were to say the fastest sprinter, the strongest man, the most prolific hot dog eater you wouldn't break it down by weight classes or division.....so using this thinking in boxing if you threw all of the boxers on the various lists into a tournament of greatest punchers David Tua would be left standing. He is the single greatest puncher of the last 10 years.

That's a double standard if ever I saw one.

In my books, Tszyu and Naz were great punchers. Pac has good power but it's his speed and flurries that make him so dangerous.
TSZYU IS THE ONLY MAN TO STOP JC CHAVEZ PROPERLY. he also stopped iron chinne miguel angel gonzales who was a really tough fighter. he took some great blows from oscar but went the distance

NASEEM never beat anyone of judahs calibre. Judah was sensational until tszyu flattened him. most people fancied him to beat tszyu

that is an exageration isn't mate. oscar ko'd mayorga earlier than tito and he wasn't giving him weight. he took out oba carr with one punch (unlike tito)

You could easily put a case for tito being the stronger puncher. its just my opinion

Look at their record mate:

Oscar won 38 (KO 30)
TITO won 42 (KO 35)


I know tito has more ko's but not by much . TITO had more power in his hand right hand but BEST PUNCH V BEST PUNCH, I THINK OSCAR's left is more powerful thank tito's best punch

Do you forget round 8 of BAD BLOOD.

oscar was throwing, and landing everything but the kitchen sink on feroz.... to no avail,

if trinidad landed half those shots on nando that hoya did in round 8 it would have looked like round 12 all over again.

not to mention tito gets to their chins first... hoya usually gets the chins when they already have miles put on them drastically, there is no arguing that.
here is a link to that round. i don't see oscar hitting him with everything. he's only hitting vargas with his not so powerful right hand

Even using you non p4p logic I wouldn't rate Tua as # 1. I would rate lnnox above him. His right was as powerfull as Tua's left but way more versatile

If you read my post you'd see I agreed that Tszyu was one of the great punchers of the past 10 years.

Anyway, the Chavez that Tszyu stopped was a shell of his former self having already been stopped twice before Kostya got to him. Zab Judah on the other hand was a good win but as he's since proved, his chin isn't fantastic. To claim Judah was a much better win than some of the proven champs on Hamed's resume is to do them a major disservice.

You also failed to explain a point I made in my previous post. You give Pac credit for carrying his power up in weight with him yet refuse to do the same for Naz. Care to explain, or is it just hatred?

Julian Jackson by far. Although he is boderline on not being inside the past ten years, he was still an active fighter at the time so I included him.
