    Wladimir Klitschko is no. 1 in my book.
    2 to 10, in no particular order: Lewis, Foreman, Liston, Morrison, Tyson, Briggs, Lyle, Tua, Wilder.
    You can probably even add someone like Cleveland Williams in there.

    Wladimir Klitschko should definitely be in this list. Steward, Phil Jackson, Ray Mercer all said Wlad hit harder than Lewis and Lennox was a monsterous puncher

    Another poor list - a youtube special - who'da thunkit!

    It least it wasn't populated exclusively by champions as many of these lists are.

    Hard to make a list.

    I guess its hard to compare a hard puncher to a great effective puncher. I bet David Tua, in terms of sheer power, was a heavier hitter than Dempsey, but Dempsey was quicker handed and more effective.

    In the modern era, i would pick (in no order) Foreman, Shavers, Lewis, Tua, Tyson (who was a great combianation puncher but also had genuine one punch power), Wlad and a few others.

    I am a Vitali fan but not only was he not a top puncher, he was not the hardest punching Klitschko .. Wlad hit much harder .. Vitali was a solid puncher that wore men down ..

    It's a cool list but are we lookin at real power ? Take a flawed fighter like a Frank Bruno. Bruno was a monster puncher .. Mike Weaver was a monster two handed puncher ..
