Manny P gets a shout for me aswell...He is as strong as any of the guys he has fought at these higher weights and I remember he apparently used to manhandle welterweights when sparring for fights at feather.
interesting about pac. i don't recall him doing much grappling type stuff or close quarters body work. he seems to be more of an in andout fighter.

Mickey Walker has to be in with a shout for this one as well as Tony Zale.

Chris Eubank was an amazingly strong fighter.

From the past: Dick Tiger (a beast for all-time)

From the present: Manny Pacquiao (looked strong as a bull at light-welter only a year or so after being a super-feather)

Armstrong. Look at the way he bulled middleweights around the ring. Amazing. Duran was a bull, too.

Foreman was extremely powerful.

First thoughts:
Tiger, Briscoe, Monzon, even Valdez though less so than the others (what an era for iron-cast MWs!)

Armstrong was a beast for his size, Foreman was a monster too....Currently Kirkland and Urango are some beastly fighters.
