    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) :

    Deontay Wilder
    Wladimir Klitschko
    Anthony Joshua
    Earnie Shavers
    Lennox Lewis
    George Foreman
    Donovan Ruddock
    Tommy Morrison


    For starters.

    Many HWs had more one punch power, but not power in their combinations like Mike

    Many heavyweights including ones Tyson had faced hit harder than him.

    What made him more dangerous were his speed, accuracy, combinations, and angles.

    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.
