Which are your top five most powerful left hooks of all time in the heavyweight class?
Tua, Cooney, Morrison, Tyson, and Frazier.
Dempsey, louis, liston, foreman, cooney, .....honorable mentions frazier, tyson, cooper..henry
Foreman, Cooney, Tua, Liston, Tyson
Frazier, Patterson, Morrison, Dempsey, Marciano
Now the best left hooks might be dempsey, frazier, tyson....maybe
I think you got it right. Honorable mention to Razor Ruducks half hook/uppercut.
I wouldn't include Frazier myself,not for pure power,for the ability to fire and reload instantly yes.For power I would have Liston,Ruddock,Williams,Dempsey above him .
I'm not sure I understand the question, is it just for pure power or a the best left hook WITH power
For just power I'd say
George Foreman (poor punch structure loses some of his power)
HM: Wilder, Tyson, Cooney, Shavers and Ruddock
For all round best left hooks with power
1. Joe Frazier
2. Floyd Patterson
3. Tommy Morrison
4. Joe Louis
5. Mike Tyson
HM: Holyfeild, Liston, Dempsey and Marciano
Oops just seen this. Oh well
Frazier, Louis, Dempsey, Lewis, Tyson. < original response...
Now I read it is only on pure power...
Lewis, Wlad, Tyson, Cooney, Tua
Agreed. Many of the top heavies from the 90's said that Bert's was the most powerful.
Or did you mean 'enery?
