    First one that immediately came to mind was the Frazier hook that damn near ripped Jimmy Ellis' head off.

    Floyd Patterson - Ingemar Johansson II for sure is up there
    Ibeabuchi - Byrd, if you count that as a hook
    Bob Foster - Mike Quarry
    Most Ruddock Ko's if you count 'The Smash' as a left hook
    'Insert Mike Tyson KO here'

    That was a very beautiful left hook, but it didn't pack that much power.
    Tommy has thrown hooks that were twice as strong.
    In this scenario, it was a short left hook and he didn't get to put too much body weight behind it.

    Yep, that one, the Foster KO, and even the Ali KD are unholy shots from Smokin' Joe.

    May well be debatable whether they were the among the hardest ever thrown but they sure looked brutally spectacular if nothing else.

    Razor Ruddock’s final hook against Michael Dokes.
    Gerry Cooney’s rib breaking left hook to the body against Ron Lyle.
