I disagree. I think he was completely efficient. He knew he had the stamina to accompany his power and he hit you wherever and broke you up, normally stopping his opponent. I consider him extremely efficient, because he used volume to his advantage, not waiting to look for only the best shots and sharp shoot but bludgeon, on purpose. Smart only because he was strong enough that it was still damaging when he wasn't hitting a "button" and because he had the stamina that he wouldn't gas attempting it. Walcott, Layne, Matthews, these guys he took out, two with well-placed single shots and one with a double left hook. He had two-handed one-punch knockout power that he carried all fight, as he demonstrated, but he also had his style, which was not based on single shot punching, even though he was capable of it.

With his method though, as he chose to fight, he was, well, 100% efficient in winning and almost 90% in winning by stoppage. It's hard to call that inefficient. Inaccurate? Well, if you deliberately aim for shoulders, cheeks, chin, forehead, ribs, nuts, shoulders, hips, and anything you can hit... He accurately beat the shit out of everything on a person's body he could possibly get away with.

Default Meh, gonna include some B-level C-level guys.

Gonna put in some names for consideration, by no means top anything, given the level of their competition:

Valero - sigh...PAC v VALERO would've been fun to watch.

Khaosai Galaxy - dunno how he would have fared against the elite but all I can remember is the same kind of "gulp!" I have whenever I watch Foreman, Liston and Tyson in their prime. It looked like he was trying to implode the internal organs of his opponents.

I'm gonna break whatever part of you that I can reach. Have heard on documentaries that the blood vessels on some guys' arms were so busted up they couldn't effectively lift them up to form a guard.

Speaking of Joe Louis, the power he generated always reminds me of the leverage that Tommy Hearns used in his power punches (esp. his left hook to body). I always love to watch fighters use proper leverage: legs, hips, waist, torque everything into their punches. Guess no one's picking Calzaghe

No Julian Jackson arguably the hardest P4P puncher of all time.

I'd have the G-Man damn close to him. I used to argue that Mclellan was the GOAT puncher, and not Jackson, but it's probably more correct to say that Jackson was the harder hitter punch for punch, although I personally think Gerald was the better knockout artist (More likely to stop someone)

Remember my father being totally obsessed with Gerald during the 90s, Gerald knocked everyone out left and right, EARLY.

A pure beast.
