Jerry Quarry stopped him in one, which means there's no way he could hit hard.
Good gracious, you're right. I would change my vote to That Other Boxer Who Also Hits Hard, except that (1) I already voted for him, and (2) he got KO'd by somebody as well.
Switching to Benny Leonard ASAP.
Benny’s winning at this moment. I’ll hold back my selection to see if this trend continues. Earnie might need my vote in sympathy.
Benny's an underrated pick in these kinds of discussions. So underrated that he wins every thread about who's the most underrated. Benny needs your vote.

Freaking ELEVEN people said he hit the hardest, and all of those eleven people had tasted other punchers besides Shavers including George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Sonny Liston, Ron Lyle, Mike Tyson, Gerry Cooney, Jeff Merritt, Gerrie Coatzee, Frank Bruno and Tommy Morrison.
Here are everybody who said Shavers hit the hardest:
