Default Hardest hitting fighters between 1940-1990 from the LW, WW, and HW divisions

Right of the top at HW Marciano, Foreman, and possibly Jersey Joe would be my picks...

His power was still very good at 147 and even 154. Makes you realize just how hard he had to have hit at 130 and 135

Please do, because Barrera was in his prime at 122 and 126. Lightweight limit is 135. He fought at 130 and had a good performance against Morales (III) I think, other than that, I don't know. Anything above that is a joke.

No way Duran should be considered one of the hardest punchers at 135. You have Lew Jenkins, Rosario, and Williams (I believe definitely hit harder than Duran).

At HW, I'd say the usual suspects: Foreman, Shavers, Cleveland Williams, Liston, and Tyson.

WW: Hearns, Cuevas, Robinson, and Trinidad (arguable, I know).

DelaHoya only had serious power at 135 and 140. 147 he was more of an accumulation puncher with enough sting to turn the fight around, but not end it with one punch.

Jackson was at his best as a JMW and Ketchel was officially a MW, but could be lumped into JMW because of his same-day weigh-ins.

Middleweight and JMW has a hell of alot of punchers occupying there, but you only stated LW, WW, and HW in the thread title...

Arguello as well for 135 and Duran of course definitely does deserve a mention
