Joe louis could knock you out from 6inches by using leverage and technique but dont think he could compare to the much larger heavyweights of the later century. Foreman and shavers were monsters they were definitley the pinnacle of heavyweight punchers. I think lennox lewis has a shout to be in the top 5 that right hand over the top was devastating. Tua looks pretty devastating in his highlights also.

Rarely hear mention of Curtis Shepperd but a recent article posted here quoted Archie Moore rating him as a harder hitter than Marciano ..

Marciano, underated due to size may have hit hardest, Joe louis and Dempsey also. Foreman, but he needed very easy target. Getting into position to land is very important, Tyson was great at it. Those four are my top picks. Shavers and Tua are most overated

For one shot,,,,,,

Jeff 'Candy Slim' Merritt

For one punch, his left hook may have been the single-most devastating shot.

Absolutely not. He hit hard enough but he'd break you down with a lot of punches then take you out. He was never the kind of guy that'd run in and bomb you out in a round or two. He never had the kind of power that could completely turn a fight around either.

Solid puncher? Yes.
Hardest ever? Certainly not.
Joe wasn't the hardest punching heavyweight, but his left hook was lethal. Most fans who know the sport will tell you that. Still a hard puncher acknowledged by many of his opponents.

Single shot one punch power goes to Shavers, Baer and perhaps Fitz.

Most power in both hands combined, George Foreman is #1, followed by Liston and Tyson.

Here are some names I've heard mentioned:

Bob Fitzsimmons
Max Baer
Joe Louis
Rocky Marciano
Sonny Liston
George Foreman
Earnie Shavers
David Tua
Mike Tyson
Lennox Lewis

My guess is that George Foreman would have struck the hardest single blow, but who knows.
It's hard to say / tell............ However, I will say the right hand Lewis bounced off Ruddock's jaw in round 1 back in '92 was as wicked as they come.......
