    What is the more devastating punch?

    The one that lands. I'd imagine Wilder's right is harder to avoid due to his greater range.
    In terms of sheer impact; doesn't matter, either one is capable of cracking a world-class chin.

    I’d say Wilders right hand.... that things a rocket launcher. Tua’s hook was impressive but when Wilder lands it’s that ohhh wow kind of thing.

    No doubt about it. Tua’s hook, Wlads right hand when he really dug in and sat on it, Lewis uppercut, Morrison’s left hook. All harder and faster imo.

    Wilder right cross without a doubt... I still feel intimidated today and feeling the effects of watching that fight.

    I truly felt that KO of breazeale in my house.

    Besides... Wilder has the most ability to Land not Tue at 5'10 with 70 inch reach he would struggle ... Wilder makes it effortless.

    The knees give out and the brain is disconnected when Wilder lands... it's a miracle these fighters survive.

    When Tua had an opponent who stood bolt upright, was bereft of functioning reflexes, was traditionally a slow starter, threw the kind of punches that wouldn't keep a girl off him and had an extremely porous defense...he did the same with his left hook that Wilder did with his right hand.

    Breazeale was truly made to order...fight was essentially won before the opening bell.

    Tua landed that left hook on fighters who were leagues above those that Wilder has faced, for that reason I’m picking Tua’s left hook.

    That said I rate Tommy Morrison’s Left Hook as possibly the best ever in the Heavyweight division

    I'd probably die if hit by either, but I think I'd have better chances of recovery if I was hooked by the tua

    I thought Tuas left hook was going to go down as one of the deadliest punches in the history of the division but then Ike Ibeabuchi happened. Took them and asked for seconds. Still one of the most impressive things ive ever seen in a boxing ring.

    Agreed,Tua knocked out much better fighters. Deontay Wilder's loves to knock out old men and tomato cans. Most people who fought Morrison and Tyson have stated that Morrison's hook had more power.

    Tua only knocked out tin cans , he was slow and labored vs the elite in the sport.
