    Holyfield had a wicked left hook. Bowe, Mercer and Tyson all went down to it.

    Mayweather was a puncher when he started out, he could really bang, he was a little savage in the early days.

    But going up the weights and hand trouble made him change his style somewhat, he was less aggressive and boxed more.

    Sven ''The Phantom'' Ottke 34-0 (6 KO)



    Ottke's trainer Ulli Wegner has trained among others

    Punchers like


    Arthur Abraham
    Alexander Frenkel
    Robert Helenius
    Marco Huck
    Yoan Pablo Hernandez
    Mads Larsen

    BEST DEFENSE
    Sven Ottke: He had the most important asset to be not just a good- but a world-class operator inside the ring — anticipation. He knew where to move to not to get hit. That’s why he got named “Phantom.”

    BEST CHIN
    Ottke: That’s hard to say. I always trained and still train my boxers to hit and not to get hit. To answer this question in another way — I was worried the least when Sven Ottke stepped into the ring.

    FASTEST HANDS
    Ottke:
    Ottke is naturally gifted.

    FASTEST FEET
    Ottke:
    One of the most evasive fighters I have ever seen.

    SMARTEST
    Ottke:
    Ottke was the smartest to effectively implement tactics inside the ring. Abraham is clever analyzing strengths and weaknesses of his opponent inside the ring. The problem is that he is not always focused and doesn’t bother about every foe. That’s when he gets problems. He tends to underestimate opponents.

    And last but by no means least

    BEST PUNCHER
    Ottke: You might laugh about my next statement but the truth is that Sven Ottke was the hardest puncher. The problem was that due to his style and his ring intelligence, he couldn’t or didn’t want to open up to showcase it. You could see it once, when he had to go for broke versus (Anthony) Mundine. Otherwise, Arthur Abraham has one hell of a punch

    Bivol's last 5 fights have all gone the distance for some reason, but thats not his fault, but more so because his opponents were in defense mode/survival mode... its hard to get a KO like that.

    The percentage of knockouts depends not only on the power of the punch, but also on the style of boxing. More aggressive boxers who shoot more shots, have a strong rhythm and go forward will have a higher percentage than those who are more passive. In the heavyweight category, the more muscle mass, the stronger the punch.

    Good calls!

    I'd also mention the guys whose KO% wasn't low, but it was just respectable while their power was brutal - Tony Zale and Tim Witherspoon
