    Haye hit harder than Fury based off of their performances vs Chisora. So considering that I see no reason why Holyfield who stopped the iron chinned Tyson couldn't hit harder than Fury.

    He landed 84829 punches on Thompson and got TKOed. If you really think that Haye is harder puncher than Fury, you need some mental treatments.

    Of course. David Haye and murat gassiev are bigger punchers than fury ever will be.

    These two are absolute top punchers even for heavyweight limit. They would be top 5 punchers in every era

    Fury didn't really sit down on his shots that fight and pitty patted his way to victory against Chisora. It seemed he didn't want to hurt him that badly.

    P4P Holyfield in reality it's fairly similar. Fury is not a very big hitter for a man of his size and Holyfield hit hard for his size.

    Another factor is you are more likely to see a Fury shot coming at you. Holyfield could suddenly snap you with a full force left hook counter you didn't even anticipate. This adds considerably to the damage caused.

    Bowe was not a hard hitter at all. He landed a flush bare knuckle 1-2 on Larry Donald and it barely staggered him. He also landed countless bombs on Holyfield in the first fight and Hilyfield took them with ease.

    Fury hits harder than both Bowe and Holyfield.
