Still one of the biggest injustices to me is Spinks. The guy has obviously been dragged down because he went to heavyweight, at 175 he was a monster hitter. Saad at 24 and Spinks at 42 is a travesty. Spinks and Mustafa Muhammad were bigger hitters and always beat Saad for biggest hitter in the division awards - rightfully so.

Foreman is there too tho. Many still think Shavers is the hardest hitter ever, tho i'll grant their criteria wasn't 100% power based hence a Monzon etc going well. Shaver's is legend power wise, i think they decided his extreme power overshadowed his lack of top level class enough to still get him in the 10. I'm sure Duo will wholehertedly agree

I absolutley agree with you. I wouldn't even have him top 10 Heavyweights.

My list was much better

McCallum and Sal Sanchez above Benn

I think that's a lot worse than Eddie and Spinks compared to Saad.Not much difference between the three imo.All had some brutal knockouts and could turn fights quickly.

They were close, but Spinks surely should have been the head of them. Agree with Benn and co, but do remember it's not power based alone. Even so it's a funny one

Nigel Benn and Bob Satterfield deserve to be much higher in terms or raw power you could argue Satterfield hits harder then Louis, Marciano or Dempsey.

Spinks at 42 is a travesty.

As is Dempsey at #7. Foreman at #9 but Marciano at #14 is a joke too.

Although i'm no expert on Ketchel, i think there are more proven fighters than him, considering he's #6.

Good list. Just think Eduardo Lausse should be in the top 10. He had to be one of the most feared left hookers ever!

Salvador Sanchez shouldn't be in the list at all, imo. He was a decent puncher, but certainly no more so than SRL, or Jack Delaney, or a whole bunch of others who didn't make the list.

Monzon's far too high too. McCallum must have just scraped in.
