Default Is this one KO the entire basis for Peter's power being so feared?

It appears so.


Peter couldn't even get but one off balance knockdown of Toney in two full fights of pounding on the little guy. And Toney is not even what you'd call a natural heavyweight.

Peter also landed on Wladimir, flush, at least five times throughout their fight, and didn't get but one legitmate knockdown, which was late in the fight. (tenth, I think). And Wlad is supposedly a very weak chinned heavy who is tailor made for a big puncher who can bull his way in and land a big shot. He did land, a few times, but it didn't get the results Peter was after, though.



I think Peter has an incredible chin and a very strong will to win, but he's not the brutal powerpuncher most make him out to be. Granted, some of his ineffectiveness is due to poor form and technique, as he probably does have great power, but he can't deliver it, at least not well enough to be as damaging as most seem to think he is.

No, it came from the fact he KO'd 17 of the first 18 guys he faced.

He was already hailed as a big puncher long before he almost decapitated Williams.

That's because 17 of the first 18 guys he's faced were bums. This guy couldn't KO Shufford, even McCline KO's Shufford.

Tyrone Brunson has 18 first round KO's in a row, so in your opinion, he is the best puncher to ever live..right?

So are you arguing that he is NOT a big puncher????

You realize that Toney is one of the best defensive fighters of our generation....right? And that NOONE for the most part ever rocked Toney.

I mean, you realize that right?

I am not saying he is not a big puncher, no.

I am saying that he is a big puncher, obviously, but not nearly as powerful as most seem to imply that he is. If he had the mythical power that his reputation implies, Toney would have been KOed, good chin or not. Same for Wladimir.

Didn't happen. Peter is a strong puncher, but not as strong as his reputation says he is. I recall that Duva and some of those clowns in the Peter camp were saying he has the most powerful puncher since Sonny Liston. I know they are merely trying to hype their meal ticket, but still. Peter has yet to earn even one KO of a decent heavyweight.

He probably won't be dropping Maskaev, either.

The effectiveness of Peter as a KO puncher is obviously limited by the level of opposition he's in with, as is usually the case, but it seems more apparent in this case. Jeremy Wiliams and Julius Long, sure, he can KO those kind of fighters. LOL

Toney probably has one of the best chins in boxing history, also he takes a lot of steam off of punches because of his little defensive moves he does which counts for a lot. Toney ain't never being stopped, or at least not in a few more years as he gets older.

Peter is definitely a powerful puncher, although not a good puncher. He didn't win by KO his last fight because Toney has the best chin of all times, but he was able to knock him down.

Agreed, but i think in some form Toney was off balance which had a bit to do with it

He was indeed off balance, but Peter's punch connected Toney's face and he went down, making it legitimate.

I don't think Peter has power like Tua or Foreman, **** no, he doesn't... but he could be considered a powerful slugger in any heavyweight division of the last 100 years.

I've said this a million times and I''ll say it again. Peter is a huge puncher as long as his opponent stands perfectly still for about 5 minutes while he winds up a slow looping haymaker. As long as he continues to fight top guys, don't expect to see any highlight reel KO's from him.

Having the kind of power that peter has is like having a 10 inch **** but also having erictile disfuntion
