Hamsho deserves a mention. Bobby Czyz said in a mid-ring interview immediately after their bout that Mustafa's superior mature physical strength was the direct reason for that outcome (and Bobby was hardly a 90 pound weakling beach puny).

Watching Minter-Antuofermo I & II (especially with the way Alan manhandles Vito in their return), then Hamsho-Minter, we are looking at remarkable duels of physical strength.

Dwight Davison had been a star wrestler in high school, and the squat undefeated Curtis Parker (a pocket Frazier who later came out on the short end with Hamsho twice) actually got wrestled to the floor while desperately trying to bore his way in. Later, although Dwight allowed Sibson to completely outhustle him (in what looked like a walking tank job to me), Tony couldn't budge Davison. The late 1970s and early 1980s were a remarkable era for block of granite middleweights. (This was an extremely unfortunate time for the likes of Parker to be competing.)

Can anyone imagine George Foreman on juice like the Klitschkos ? He was a 220 plus monster naturally ....

Seems Jack Johnson has been left out and he was exceptionally strong ... many of the names mentioned are right on ..

Dick Tiger
Dwight Qwai
James Jeffries
Chuvalo
Terry Norris
Lennox Lewis

So many knowledgable people posted so many names, yet no one mentioned Emile Griffith. Shame on you, people.

Dennis Andries, his biggest asset was probably his strength.

I think P4P it would have to be Khaosai Galaxy the man was several weight classes above his opponents in regards to strength, built like a brick shit house to boot. Nobody not even prime George Foreman looked as strong in the ring as did Galaxy he looked like a powerfully built man pushing around little boys (i know theres a diff in quality of opponents). Nobody could out slug him, nobody could push him around, nobody could back him up just a physical beast.
