    spence could not put a dent in mikey garcia who was a chubby 126lb fighter lmao, the guy has zero power in his hands. He could not keep porter off him.

    Vergil Ortiz Jr, Radzhab Butaev, Keita Obara, Cesar Miguel Barrionuevo and if they move up Shohjahon Ergashev and Marcelino Nicolas Lopez.

    Prime 140 Lucas hit harder than every single welterweight on the planet right now



    Time-stamped








    "I must say that Matthysse is the hardest puncher I have been in the ring with.''

    --Devon Alexander (Devon also fought savage punchers Maidana and Randy Bailey)


    DL: That is amazing that you have been fighting above your weight class and you have faced every monster puncher at 140 'Miguel Cotto, Zab Judah, Marcos Maidana, Lucas Matthysse, Ruslan Provodnikov' Who is the hardest puncher of that bunch?

    DeMarcus Corley: I would say Matthysse. But I would be remiss if I left out Freddy Hernandez who knocked me out at welterweight. He can punch. I was winning the fight, I just got caught in the fifth round.

    I can't believe this. Many people voted for Pacquiao as the hardest puncher at 147. I have not seen him knocking out anyone at 147 for years (The T.K.O. victory over Mathyssee didn't count since that dude took a dive).

    We do know that Spence hits roughly as hard as Adrien Broner and Manny Pacquiao. Are you sure about that? Where's the evidence he's some killer puncher? The Algieri stoppage only happened because Spence is far better at cutting off the ring and going for the kill than Pacquiao.

    You sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Algieri's main goal was to survive, box off the back foot, and not get knocked out by Pac? And the fact that Algieri stood and traded with Spence?

    Not one mention of CONOR BENN?

    The commentary team on Sky Sports will be shocked and disgusted that nobody mentioned Conor "chip off the old block" Benn

    Be honest — you don't see Pac hurting Mikey badly or dropping him? Spence couldn't do anything to Mikey and he threw 1,100+ shots.

    Danny Garcia for single one shot power, spence has good power and is able to sustain a higher punch out put than danny which often results in more overall sustained damage.
