Peter is definitely a big puncher. However, it is the ability to land those big punches that make people an very dangerous puncher. Peter is getting better at tightening up his shots.

Let's not forget that his knockdown of Toney was with a jab. Toney never landed a big flush power punch on Toney during those fights. Toney's defense is too good, and Peter threw lighter punches simply geared to land on Toney.

Make no mistake about it, Peter does have devastating power. The problem is that his wild shots are telegraphed and most people can see them coming, and prepare for them.

I get your meaning.

I haven't seen that fight in a while, but I recall Peter caught Toney a few times,and I know he caught Wlad at least five times with good flush shots.

People who say he never really caught Wlad need to go back and watch the fight again, cause Peter certainly did catch Wlad with a few good shots; flush shots.



Peter is obivously strong as hell, but I think the overall aura of Peter's destructiveness is overrated, greatly. The Toney fights proved that. Had Peter been the wave of desctruction that he was touted to be, the small Toney would not have been able to stand toe to toe with him for 24 rounds.

I agree that Peter did catch Wladimir Klitschko with quite a few flush power punches. I also happen to believe that W. Klit's chin is underrated, as people exaggerate him to having a glass jaw when he doesn't.

However, in the Toney fight, Peter never really was able to load up on his shots like he did against the taller Wlad. Peter was able to swing like a crazed animal when in close against Wlad which is why he was able to land some of those shots. Wlad's size allowed that. However, Toney was a smaller target and Peter couldn't even come close when loading up, so he took the steam off of his shots. He did land flush shots against Toney, and beat him in both fights, IMO, but he never landed any of his monster shots on Toney.

He is a good puncher that is not in question.
remember now guys like Taurus sykes who fought the same bums and beat them only had like 6 Ko's in 20 fights so relative to that it is clear he is a good puncher.

He is considered a monster puncher more so cause of his style.
He swings hard. When you swing hard you get a somewhat inflated perception of being a power puncher even if you are not one.
I agree. He is a good puncher but when fighting quality opposition, due to his poor skills he cannot properly place and time his shots.

Yes, I think Peter's pure power is somewhat overrated, and he doesn't have much speed or skill with which to deliver, either. He's gone 10-1 with only 5 knockouts since he started fighting top 50 opponents, and he's never stopped a top 20 heavyweight. His power is good, but I don't think it's anything overly special.

Peter is very heavy handed and extremely physically strong, but he is not a great KO puncher. If he can hit you clean with a big haymaker, it's trouble, but he lacks the snap and technique that made Tua, Tyson, Liston, and Wlad devestating KO punchers.
