I heard there are many devastating punchers in this sport. Examples of them?
Not that many people tho, maybe somewhere....
Sugar Ray Robinson
Eugene Cyclone Hart
Irish Bob Murphy
Srisaket Sor Rungvisai
Julio Cesar Chavez
INB4 "Not about power he had speed and delivery with his power" "Clubbing power not piercing" and all the other cookie cutter answers whenever this kind of question get's asked.
Well, only other heavyweights hit as hard as Tyson. But punching power is relative to weight divisions and you have a ton of smaller fighters who display devastating power against men that are their own size.
To answer your question though, these are the guys who hit as hard as Tyson (approx) :
Many HWs had more one punch power, but not power in their combinations like Mike
I respectfully disagree…Mike Tyson hits harder than about half of these people
Many heavyweights including ones Tyson had faced hit harder than him.
What made him more dangerous were his speed, accuracy, combinations, and angles.
Or were you being sarcastic?
He was excellent because he had power.. And speed, in brilliant combination s.
Whenever was calling David Tua the next Mike Tyson ….I said slow your horses
He asked of people who hit harder or hits just as hard. When will you learn to read the title Bronze...
Julio Cesar Chavez does not hit as hard as Mike Tyson …neither does Roberto Duran
I really need to watch more tapes of Ron Lyle….because if knowledge posters ( like OP Jawbreaker) consider him a top notch puncher then I must have missed something
Yup, his power was definitely way above average but not quite as high as some boxers for raw power. His speed, accuracy, and combinations were a lethal mixture unlike anyone.
Dude, he had Foreman on jelly legs.. Have you not seen Foreman-Lyle ?
