    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

    Sonny Liston
    David Tua
    Wladimir Klitschko
    George Foreman (poor punch structure loses some of his power)
    Lennox Lewis

    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

    Agreed. Many of the top heavies from the 90's said that Bert's was the most powerful.

    Or did you mean 'enery?
