If we're going to go down the road of quoting fighters we've never seen then surely Fitz has to be a very sharp puncher. He KO'd genuine heavyweights and significantly larger men with single blows. Joe Walcott too...the Barbadian one.

Tommy Morrison could be very sharp at times, very fast, very compact and loaded with crazy power.

He couldn't even drop a way past it, slow Ali who was absorbing plenty of punishment. Not saying he didn't hit incredibly hard, but was absolutely not a sharp puncher. He clubbed at guys and only ever stopped a couple of good opponents.
i agree

for sure, i guarantee you that tommy morrison did hit harder than tyson shot for shot, and pinklon thommas felt it himself.

bob foster, david tua, brutal one shot power,

mike tyson never was a single shot knock artist , he was fast,explosive and accurate but he did not have pure power without his great speed, his hitting power were not that good when he was past his prime and more slow, however guys with heavy hands like foreman did carry his power even in his 40s, tyson was more a combination puncher. david tua was more a single shot knock artist than tyson ever was

Although i see what your getting at here regarding Tyson i beg to differ about his one punch KO ability. Tyson Ko'd with 1 shot on a few occasions, Williams being one that springs to mind

Tyson had more to his gameplan than landing 1 shot to end it, that was really all Tua relied on. So that's why.

i think that the real motive was that tua had clearly more hitting power shot for shot, tyson always did need his speed, tua had raw power like foreman.

Foreman, Liston and Shavers weren't sharp punchers.

Don Curry is what you call a sharp puncher.

How many guys did Julian Jackson spark out with single shots ?
I hear him referenced a lot, and remember him as a great puncher, but really mostly remember him against McCallum, Drayton and Graham.

Jackson took out at least a dozen on film with chilling single shots that left them sleeping.

Yeah, I probably missed a lot of that. Forgotten some of it too no doubt.
