Default Mediocre fighters with great one-punch-power

I mean not elite fighters who were great allround-punchers like Ike Williams, Joe Louis, etc. for example, I mean for example mediocre journeymen, clubfighters, at the best contenders who were very dangerous, when they land something good and precise that the lights were out, here some examples:


Charley Retzlaff
Bert Cooper
Fred Fulton
Eduardo Lausse
Vick Patrick

Earnie Shavers wasn't mediocre. He was a very good fighter, he just had stamina and chin issues which is why he lost quite a bit of his fights.

Eugene "Cyclone" Hart comes to mind; he could "summon the sand man" at a moment's notice with that booming left hook...

Mike Weaver vs. "Big" John Tate. I believe the fight was on ABC and they had preview showing outside the ring footage of Tate chopping wood. Ironically in round 15 the wood fought back and "Timmmbbbeeerrrr", Tate crashes to the matt like a big old Redwood.

Ross purity probably deserves a mention, although I'm not sure if he was a one punch kinda guy.

..with sloppy technique and the lack of ability to put a dying rabbit out of its misery.

That means he was a great puncher, not a great fighter.

And not being great, doesn't necessarily mean that one is mediocre either.

Maybe Lew Jenkins belongs here,though he did win a title,Sammy Nesmith,Iwouldnt put Lausse in there ,he sure could hit ,but I think he had a bit more going for him than a terrific punch.
