Okay so what fighters do we know said hit them the hardest? Here are some to start off the thread: You fought a lot of heavy hitters in your day. Who would you say is the hardest puncher that you ever faced? Ray Mercer: Tommy Morrison definitely. Tommy Morrison in your opinion was a harder puncher than Wladimir Klitschko or Lennox Lewis? Ray Mercer: Yes. Wladimir Klitschko hit me in the temple, first time I was ever hit like that, but it wasn't a hard punch. I'm talking about pain, it was Tommy Morrison and Bert Cooper. The Hardest puncher? "Mike Tyson. He was strong . . . a powerful man. Even when his punches didn't connect, they hurt." - Francois Botha "He doesn't hit as hard as Tyson, but he's more consistent." - Danny Williams after fighting Vitali Klitschko "4 sure he is bigger stronger n faster Worked w him this past week hardest puncher I have ever been in with" - Jameel McCline on sparring with Deontay Wilder.
