    Who would you say punched harder?

    Edit: Decided to change the comparison to Tyson Fury and Evander Holyfield.

    Well guys since this was a silly comparison (which I should have thought it through more) I decided to change the topic and compare Fury's power to Holyfield's, which I think is more closer. Please excuse me.

    Holyfield was a more explosive Puncher.

    One could imagine how badly Holyfield would have punished Wilder had they both fought.

    Holyfield was a better combination puncher. Fury was more single punch power.

    Overall Hardness like weight and power behind the punch? Fury
    Overall Speed and explosiveness and snappyness? Holyfield
    Although Holyfield was on so many PEDs he would have melted the cup

    Holyfield had a wicked left hook. Fury has a good overhand right. I give the edge to Holyfield (only slightly) as he was a more proven puncher.

    Fury. No former CW could hit harder than 202 cm 125 kg giant.
