Default Power - If you had to choose a single fighter...

In the P4P sense, who would it be?

Who, pound for pound, is the single most powerful puncher of all time? And why?

Of the fighters I've seen footage of my pick would be Julian Jackson. He left his opponents out cold more than once with just one punch.

Prince Naseem? We all know his flaws but that boy had some seriously bang.

Besides Graham, who of note did Jackson leave out absolutely cold?

Julian Jackson and Bob Foster are good choices.

Hank has underrated power from his earlier days at lower weights. Make no mistake, he could bang.

Foster likely hit harder than Moore, but his power wasn't as well applied. For instance, against bigger opponents, Foster wouldn't sit down on his punches because he needed to move. Against someone like the evasive Folley, he couldn't land his punches. Terrell clinched the life out of Foster. Ali was just plain tough.

He flattened Terry Norris too. Honestly, nearly half his KO's were count-outs.
I don't think anyone can question his power at all.

Either he, or Tommy Hearns as a welter would be my choices.
