Earnie Shavers probably. IMO it isn't Tyson. He doesn't even get in the top 30 in terms of single shot power.

I agree that Bruno was a much bigger one-shot puncher than Tyson. James 'Bonecrusher' Smith even said so and he's fought both guys. What made Tyson such a great puncher was his handspeed and combination punching.

I'd pick Liston, then Foreman.

They're the hardest punching of the elite.

Of course you could argue that Shavers hit harder than both.

I agree, but to say Tyson isn't even in the top 30 of single shot punching power is ludicrious. He's knocked out plenty of opponents in one shot.

I'm not sure who the hardest puncher ever is, but Tyson's gotta be up there.
