You could throw in Mickey Walker for good measure.

Hart and Valdez would be in before Hagler. Toney should not be there IMO, a juvenile RJJ would be in before him i reckon let alone others. SRR might even press the bottom of the 10.

The G-Man.. Julian Jackson holds the crown at 154 for power and easily in the top 5 at 160. Tommy hearns no 1 at 147 for power top 3 at 154 top 10 at 160. Tito top 3 at 147 top 3 at 154 top 15 at 160. Roy jones top 5 at 160 with super human speed to go with it. Artie levine who KO'd robinson for 21 seconds but lost??? "Kidfire" from 1980s had very heavy hands. Kelly Pavlik can really bang. Others on board chose great ones. Mikey!

Hagler being there is garbage. The man was never a monster puncher.

Slamming Sammy Nesmith ( if we are looking at power alone ) might need to be considered somewhere down the list.

(If we are just looking at power alone. many Middles who never broke threw because of lack or other skills, dedication, good management might deserve consideration !?

Florentino Fernandez should get a mention

Also how about William Caveman Lee and Dangerous Don Lee as other outsiders ?

Eduardo Lausse and Valdez deserve a mention.

Thomas Hearn's right hand would put him there for me. That was a monster of a punch. It completely destroyed Duran. Hearns had a really stiff jab as well. I know he wasn't always a middle-weight, but he was often enough if I'm not mistaken.
