    Is this true? I'd have said Usyk or stevenson

    Charly: Who from your list of opponents punched the hardest?

    "David Haye by a country mile.

    "The times in my career where I've been stopped, I was normally exhausted. Against Oleksandr Usyk, my grandmother would have stopped me I was so tired.

    "Haye gave me a headache for four days."

    May be true, but ask most fighter's who hit them hardest and it will be someone they beat.

    It would be logical, even though it was the corpse of Haye with poor timing.

    The biggest guy he ever fought hit him the hardest.

    Well, what a revelation this is.

    Stevenson made Bellend do a David Price impression on the ring rope before he was stopped.

    So it must be Stevenson based on the naked eye who hit him the hardest. At least he got home safe to his wife and kids that night.

    Usyk always delivers a slow prolonged beatdown so he must be at number 2 of who hits hardest. Usyk delivered a career ending beatdown, but Bellend chooses to ignore that fact. Didnt he go down like a sack of spuds against Usyk too?

    It isnt logical though, because Haye wasnt even punching at 50% of his prime power based on having no leverage on his punches. He was also raped by Usyk and Stevenson, wheras the Haye fights were easy for him because there was nothing coming back at him

    Boxers always say these things, giving the most credit to the opponents they defeated.

    Anthony/Tony Bellew is a compulsive liar, so I wouldn't trust him with anything.

    He got smashed to bits by Usyk and then Hearn pretended to hold his head as he fell down. Comedy gold.

    He had no intention of touching him but he did the motion anyway. And if he had touched him it would have been a disqualification anyway :lol: :lol:

    I see what you’re trying to say but it’s perfectly logical that the heaviest guy he faced, with a reputation as a fearsome puncher, was the hardest puncher he faced.

    His timing was way off but I haven’t got measurements for his power, so couldn’t tell you. Second fight he was shocking and looked like he could barely stand up.

    I'm surprised that you think that Eddie Hearn wouldn't get away with that on his own show. The truth is he would have. I doubt anyone would have batted any eyelid, but if they did, that's what the brown envelopes are for.

    He also ran into the ring during the Carl 'Frock' Lucian Bute bout. Technically, that should have been a disqualification, but nobody batted an eyelid.

    Technically he should not have been disqualifed as Hearn was not part of his Corner Team.

    BRUTHA USKY hit him so hard he literally could not stop kissing him after the fight. sure sign of concussion and the BRUTHA from behind the iron curtain must have been thinking "bring back glasnost, father I did not think I hit the kid this hard"

    Stevenson made him do a funny little dance and turn his back in the ring. Concussed.

    Bellew just talking up the shot to pieces one legged ghost of haye he beat twice here.
