    Carnera opposition on average would have been a lot smaller than Fury`s, Carnera was far bigger than all his opponents except Baer who was still a good bit smaller.

    I was comparing the number of KO`s to the number of wins not the total number of fights.

    Carnera fought a fair few big guys, the problem was they were even worse than him!

    I would go possible with Ezzard Charles, Jimmy Ellis, Cassius Clay, Evander Holyfield and maybe Sultan Ibraghimov; at least had all of them less power than Walujew and Carnera.

    Carnera fought more elite opponents.

    He also had more padding on his record, and perhaps as you say a few swims.

    Realistically, I don't think that either of them is in the argument for being the lightest punching lineal heavyweight champion of all time.

    What about the rest? And I've never been sold on Ruiz's power but I could've picked someone else

    Yeah his power was decent. Remember the shot he hit the terribly underrated Golota with?
