I like to think Wlad is the hardest hitter out there..

Peter is up there...

years ago it was easy .. It was Lewis , Tyson , George , Bruno....

Virchis is the sleeper...

Nice list right there Briggs, for all his faults, does hit like a mule-kick and so does Tua. Brewster has great technique in his left hook and Virchis is on par with Peter for brute force but lacking in technique or delivery.

Peter's piling up the s/d's and the ud's-- I don't he hits as hard as we thought.
Manny's got WLAD really putting his weight behind his punches. That straight right has to be a legendary punch. Anyone on the receiving end of that will be on queer street, or on the canvas. Wlad's a much harder puncher today than in '03.

He never lost to Jamel, and he floored Wlad 3 times. Ask Wlad if he felt Peters awesome power, he had a panic attack that night.

Peter has a decent punch, but it ain't anything truly special.
Toney has a great chin that niether Rahman, Holyfield or Ruiz could even knock him down with there best punches. Peter at least hurt Toney a couple times and did what no other heavyweight was able to do, put Toney on the canvas.

Peter is just fighting guys with great chins and that excessively hold like Wlad, Peter will show his power against Maskaev in a couple months, after that fight he will put fear in every heavyweights heart.

it's wlad and its not even close. others like peter, tua, virchis have great raw power. Wlad has it all: raw power, technique and speed. No other hw has all three. Call me crazy but I think Brewster deserves the second position.

look what he did to my boy in the avatar
