    I'm gonna go with:
    Foreman
    Lewis
    Vlad
    Rahman
    Louis

    I consider Wilder's right hand more of a six or overhand right than a true right cross. With that said, he is one of the most powerful punchers I have seen although I don't think he is really that good overall.

    1. Max Baer (3 deaths? Has any other champ got that?)
    2. Joe Louis (perfectly thrown, with ATG power)
    3. Deontay Wilder (it's not pretty, but it ****ing works)
    4. Lennox Lewis (ask Ruddock and Grant)
    5. Wladimir Klitschko (was stuck between him and Liston, I Landed on Wlad coz he landed more frequently and Liston liked his hooks)

    HM: Liston, Shavers, Foreman and Marciano

    I think my list would look like this... Maybe Louis or Wilder instead of Liston but it's definitely debatable.

    1. Wlad Klitschko
    2. Lewis
    3.Tyson
    4. Foreman
    5. Bowe ( I felt it he caught you square he hurt a lot of guys including Holyfield though it's hard to say at 5?)

    Based on straight / over hand ones with impact.

    I'd not have Bowe in there myself.I think Shavers and Baer hit harder.

    Wladimir Klitschko and Lennox Lewis are the top 2 for me- I cant separate them.

    Both had huge right hands that have almost decapitated opponents when landed.

    B... but he knocked out Holmes and the canvas woke him up again!!!

    A... and he partially stunned an ancient Ali!

    A... and everyone he fought said he made them hear trumpets!

    A... and........ yeah, I can't be bothered anymore.
