Default Who had the most powerful, Jab, Cross, Lead Hook, Rear Hook, Overhand +Uppercut ever?

So was the most powerful rear cross ever Earnie shavers rear cross?

Was the most powerful Jab Sonny Listons jab?

Was the most powerful left Hook Smokin Joe fraiziers Hook? Or would it belong to someone like Foreman who hit harder overall and in general?

Did George Foreman have the strongest right Hook ever?

Not sure about overhand or rear uppercut? Who that belongs to?

Also who had the strongest Chin? Was it Chavalo? Ali? Holyfield?

I'm a huge Frazier fan and he had beautiful hook that he could land from multiple angles but his was more of the 'very hurtful' variety, not the one punch nightmare variety.

Wlad's jab and Foreman's jab are absolutely dynamite. I'd add Liston based on evidence, though I don't know what his felt like(Lucky me).

Right cross: Wlad's out of the guys I've encountered. Gotta be Hearns overall on tape, though. There was nobody from 147-160, Marvin Hagler aside, that he couldn't hurt. I'm glad I never had to suffer a Shavers right, either.

Left Hook: A ton of people have told me Tommy Morrison had the most powerful left hook they had ever been hit with by some stretch. Frazier needs a shout, though I think his is the best overall, not the most powerful(Plenty walked through shots from Frazier I don't think they could have from Morrison, Joe was just twice the fighter). Tua's is probably the strongest, he torqued from the legs trying to knock a guys head off. Cooney and Tyson are up there for combining speed with apparent impact.

Overhand Right- I like the Riddick Bowe shout, as he rarely threw a straight right hand, and the right-field looper was the punch he usually did real damage with. Lewis went over sometimes, to devastating effect. Gotta love Max Baer here, too. Gerald McClellan, too, boy, had some heat when he threw the right over the jab.

Uppercut- Lennox Lewis had the best uppercut I've ever felt. I've always loved Barrera's left uppercut early in his career, though. It looked absolutely brutal. Judah's uppercut is more of a tricky countershot; Sometimes it hurts guys badly, when he catches them unaware and out of position, and sometimes guys literally walk through it. Even Vitali didn't easily absorb Lewis' best uppercut, needing to hold for several seconds to clear his head.

Ricardo Lopez did all of this and had picture perfect uppercuts with both hands. The other thing he could do was to play the counterpunching game if he choose to. Usually you have to combine assets of fighters to arrive at the word great, not with Lopez.

Chin goes to McCall

Overhand right to Butterbean because of his sheer weight.
