We should consider the quality of opposition that they have actually KOd. Because that would determine if it is a world-class power or not. And last ten years? So that would mean from 1997 up to now.

With that, here is my list.

Tito Trinidad
Naseem Hamed
Chico Corrales
Manny Pacquaio
Rafael Marquez

All of their big wins are through KOs or TKOs. And the quality of their oppostion is one of the best IMO.

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?
naz only went from bantam to featherweight. he never jumped the divisions PAC jumped

TITO trinidad was not ELITE ATG puncher in my view. he just fell short. look at the vargas, reid, joppy fights. he hurt them many times but couldn't finish them. tito could punch but not in the same league as a jackson, foster or archie moore

I think de la hoya was the bigger puncher.VARGAS never recovered from the first lethal shot he took from him. HE did when he got floored by TITO

As spectacular as some of his ko's were, naz never ko'd an elite fighter so he can't be considered a great puncher.

I don't think its that crazy. Oscar was a great puncher, especially off the left hook. Maybe Tito was slightly better, but some people here are making out like he is feather fisted.

Cant believe that Tyson isn't being mentioned.

Concerning Tszyu, he hit hard, but it was more his pinpoint accuracy than raw power that felled his victims, but then again, everything counts when being a great puncher I guess.

Felix Trinidad has to be minimum top 2 or 3 of the past decade. And yes he had a lot more power than DLH..DLH could obviously put his punches together better but as far at 1 punch power goes it definitely goes to Trinidad. The only reason he didn't dispatch of Reid and Vargas in 1-2 rounds was because Tito was ripping hooks to their gloves/arms/shoulders..anything he wanted to..

BUT Once those punches landed it was over for them fools. Same goes for everyone Tito Ko'd

I know Naz had great power but the guy didn't face much world class opposition..Trinidad fought so many more better caliber fighters than Naz..You could put 500 B level fighters in front of Trinidad and he'd knock them out no problem as well.

No.....DLH is not feather fisted but he did not contain more punching power that Tito.

Ok, lets not even mention what has been done in the ring, Tito was just a naturally stronger puncher. I am aware good technique and speed can add great amounts to the effect of a punch but Tito had both great technique and underrated speed with his punches. Not that it would sway you or TIGER more but I've met both men and Tito has pretty massive hands and large thighs, DLH has smaller thighs and much smaller hands. No I was not checking them out I was at weigh ins.

ODH and Tito had about the same power in there left hook. The thing is that ODH could get it off from anywhere anytime in a fight. Tito had a better right hand. ODH showed more power with Mayorga but you can argue that it was after Tito was through with him. So if you want to generalize a puncher from accuracy, power, and knockouts of high level competition. ODH/Tito/Pac/Raf Marquez for sure/Cotto/Wlad/You could put Tsyu but he is overrated as all hell.

I think you would see the difference just looking at the 2 fight. When Tito connected on a guy it didn't matter where he touched them Whether it was the chin, the body, arms. It didn't matter. You could see in the opponents face that he had just felt somethine unlike anyting he ever felt before. He was definatly a harder puncher.
