I saw him fight Vitali.
He never knocked out or beat anybody else worth mentioned. Him knocking out Wladimir Klitschko showed how bad his chin was not how hard Sanders punched. The same Steve Zouski a old fat come backing Foreman stopped went the distance with Sanders. Sanders best wins besides stopping Wlad was beating up a old beat up Bert Cooper, glass chin Johnny Du Ploy. Did it mean Corrie Sanders couldn't punch? No it does not. But knocking out a few old men and a few glass chin fighters doesn't equate to being a all time great puncher.
I'll keep that in mind Mr Expert
Dunno. He was a bit inconsistent at top level and rarely got a chance to fully showcase his power. He was wicked fast though, and seemed to have natural explosiveness, and in his prime he could throw together some blistering combinations that looked like shoe shining but would snap fighters' heads back and drop them hard.
He wasn't perhaps as heavy handed as some, but that speed was a killer.
Putting Rahman on his ass, getting Vitali Klitschko in trouble, and taking out Al Cole in two minutes doesn't mean much, right Mr. Boxrec?
I'd take that with a grain of salt. Sprott had just been stopped when they were talking to him.
And Michael Sprott staggered Corrie Sanders and Sprott beat the count and shoved the ref for stopping it. I've seen Sprott knocked out cold. The South African commentators, on the replay, couldn't even find a punch that put him down.
If you watched all of Sprott's fights, I think you'd fine many occasions where it looked like he'd been hit harder and couldn't get up. He's been stopped 18 times.
Regardless, Sanders only stopped roughly six of every 10 guys he fought. He was a good puncher. Not among the best ever, IMO.
Well, let's be honest, that stoppage was total bull**** and I say that as a Sanders fan. Sprott could have gone on.
I think what impressed Sprott was that Sanders fed his power right through the guard and shook him up regardless. Sprott has always said Sanders was the guy that hit him the hardest. IIRC so did Vitali and so did Rahman.
Vitali has stopped 9/10 guys he's fought, he clearly hits harder than featherfists such as Shavers, Tyson and other similar noodle-wristed punchers. By your logic, of course.
you talkin' shiet muddafukkas ? (with SA accent of course)
