Jess Willard
Carnea also. Never counted out. Sure they been down, but Dempsey, Louis and Baer never got a ten count over them. Forget the Firpo fight with Jess. That was when Willard was shot.

Suppose John L Sullivan can be mention perhaps?? Yeah he was ko by Corbett. But that was in 21 rounds.

Gene Tunney is other. Nearly 80 fights, and down once. The long count of couse.

Max Baer was only counted out one time, to Joe Louis.

Of couse the big ones are always mention. Marciano, Ali, Holyfiled, Bowe.


And the chicken Game needs a mention.

Dempsey Should Be One Of The (top) 5 If Not First Out Of About A ? 100 Bouts Only Had 1 Ko Loss And Most Say It Was A Dive For 500 $ He Ko-d The Dude Later In Another Fight In 2 Rounds

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned Marion Wilson. That guy's resume is filled with big punchers.

I dont know, Id say Smokin' Joe was one of the most underrated.. He got knocked down by ****ing George Foreman, wide open, on his way in... That would lay ANYONE out..

Althought not one of the best, def under rated.

Not Heavyweights. At least if you mean who I think you mean, and I can't think of anyone else you'd mean.

Foreman's power is a bit over rated. If he was relly the puncher he was, he should have lay Ken Norton, John Denis, and Pires out cold. Foreman was more of the TKO type of puncher. Most often than not, Foreman would down a man over and over again and force a stoppage that way.

Were say Louis or even Marciano needs one smash or good combo and there down for the ten count.

Oh, I thought you meant Jack Roper!

I remember george getting caught flush on the button by a tommy morrison lethal left hook and pretty much shaking it straight off.

At that rate im sure he could take most of the heavies these day's best shots.

The heavyweight division is in dire straights..**** it sux..

I seem to recall light-heavies like Archie Moore and Don ****ell getting up after being knocked down by Marciano a fair few times and the likes of Nathan Mann and Johnny Paycheck were finished 'eventually' by Louis after getting up about 10 times.

That kind of omission is very easy to make when you have an agenda to satisfy. To call Foreman's power overrated because he didn't put people out for the count as often as other great punchers is a clear fallacy of logic.

Consider Tyson and Foreman. IMO, Foreman carries greater hitting power, but due to Tyson's technique, accuracy and speed of delivery, he's much more likely to hit his opponent in a manner to cause that jolt to the brain that sends a man to sleep. Foreman's punches are wider, more telegraphed ... the opponent has the opportunity to brace himself for the impact which reduces the chances of being KO'd. However, just cos one KO's the fighter, whilst the other doesn't KO, but KD's, doesn't mean that the KO'ing fighter hits harder, just that for effectiveness, they hit 'better' for want of a better word.

Just watching Foreman hit and the testimony from his opponents leaves me with no doubt that Foreman is at the topmost tier of power punchers to ever step inside the ring.
