I would say Tua or Morrison for brute force and power but Frazier used his more efficiently than all of the guys on the list.

Everyone I've ever talked to whose felt left hooks from multiple men you listed has told me Tommy Morrison has the hardest left hook.

Frazier is in the top 3 but I have to give the nod to the Tua man

I don't think Frazier's left hook was as hard as Tua's ... but I could be wrong ...

Frazier's left hook, as has been said, is the best.

It wasn't the hardest. He doesn't have the results to back that up. He needed to hit guys way heavier and way more times to stop them on a variety of occasions.

For guys like Tua, Tyson, and Morrison, one shot knockouts were the norm.

I just asked a close friend about this..In his words he said Tuas was harder and Id have to agree, But Joes was smarter and used more often than Tua used his...So which is better, Harder or Smarter, But I do believe Tuas was a bit harder he just wasnt a marksman with it like Frazier was.

so many to compare. How to say if Tua's or Cooney left hook his harder. Ironically neither guy was champion. If Cooney or Tua had a right hand as good as their left, I think they would have been champions.. Tua should have been champion if Ruiz was champ and Moorer. He just didn't fight the right guys. They did.

Frazier though almost nothing but left hooks, so he got rep for it, but it was not best, just most used. His right hand was weak, since he was converted southpaw, and just never bothered using or developing it. Cooney hit hard as anyone, but agisnt top fighters could not land it. Tua had that Ruiz ko, which made his rep, but again, he failed agaisnt best.
For power, Cooney. Dempsey had great hook. How many scored one punch ko's with hook in big fights is thing to ask?
