    Wilder would knock all 3 out at the same time.

    That isn't the point, the fact is that Shaver's punching credentials are better the Wilder's

    And No he wouldn't. Young beats Wilder.
    Also Elis and Norton would be by far Wilders best wins.

    It is exactly the point, his credentials are no better than Wilder's.

    because they could see his punches coming.Shavers was not the quickest guy.the punches that you don’t see hurt the most.So as far as raw power, I think Shavers edges Wilder ( who is in my view belongs in the Top 5 hardest punchers of all time).

    And you are predicting Shavers could stop all Wilder's opponents.

    I have no doubts about Marciano. Much as I used to be a big fan of his, he doesn't belong on the list.

    No I'm not. I said Shavers stopped better opponents. Which he did.

    Who hurt, knocked down or koed top competition?
    Only guys with good chins who were knocked down or koed
    Wlad:
    Povetkin, byrd, Peter, chambers, Mercer, Chagaev, botha
    Wilder:
    Stiverne 1
    Lewis:
    Botha, tyson
    Foreman:
    Frazier
    Shavers:
    No one

    So wlad is clearly the biggest puncher.
    Wilder fought one iron chinned guy (duhaupas) and couldn't knock him down.

    Wilder's power only shines against chinny fighters. Strange to have him the biggest puncher

    Very hard to judge. Foreman, for me. Louis is right up there, though. He made modern sized heavyweights do pirouettes.

    Well I don't think your list is really any better than any of Wilder's résumé, you are splitting hairs here.
