    Which fighters throughout history had an average or low number of KO/TKO wins on their resume but in reality hit much harder.

    Junior Jones deserves a mention. He has a pretty average KO percentage but in reality he was a huge puncher and was like a smaller Thomas Hearns.

    I think Whitaker punched to the body alot better then people think and made alot of boxers hesitant to engage him full out.
    I think Jones speed caused his punched to pack the " oh my god what did I just get hit with factor" which gave him alot of power.
    I think Holmes right carried alot more power then people think.
