    Max Baer had the most power imo, but that's a controversial one.

    From this list here, I say Shavers has the most power, but Foreman was the most proven puncher.

    Curtis Sheppard probably belongs in the argument as well.

    I am not saying that he isn't, but I want to see more before I say that he is!

    If you were going to nominate a fighter from that era, Lamon Brewster might be the best pick!
