    A great left hook show stopper. Slow??? Those punches are anything but slow

    This version of Foreman was a top 10 H2H monster. No doubt about that

    Donaire - Darchinyan in their first encounter was an all mighty thud, and the Montiel knockout was even more devastating!

    Apologies, didn’t realise you just wanted heavyweight mentions.

    I’ll wager in with Frazier on Foster and Wlad on Chambers, which was eerily similar to the one he laid out Pulev with. From a reasonably short distance and on the replays doesn’t look like it should hit that hard, but the effect of it can’t be questioned

    Tyson's hook on Carl Williams deserves mention. It sounded like a bomb going off when it landed.

    A lot of people will mention guys like Tua, Tyson, Frazier, Wlad (and rightfully so), but I'd mention some other amazing left hooks:

    - Samuel Peter's left hook that left Jeremy Williams unconcious for several minutes;

    - Calvin Brook's left hook against Zuri Lawrence

    - Lamon Brewster's left hook against Luan Krasniqui

    Another one people seem to have forgotten:

    The Derrick Jefferson left hook that laid out Maurice Harris.

    Am I blind or has no one mentioned Patterson Johansson? The twitching foot is always a scary sign.

    Also, once Manny started yelling loud enough, Wlad iced Chambers. Out cold.

    A natural Cruiser weight who was dead on his feet in the 12th round got sparked by a massive SHW. Big Deal? :dunno

    Some of the railway workers Dempsey fought were more evenly matched than WK vs Chambers. But Jack didn't require 12 rounds or the constant need to foul when he blew them out :smile:
