    I recall Tyson commenting on Ruddock's punching power during the post fight interview. He also mentioned years later that Bruno hit him the hardest. What he said about Holyfield was that Evander hit him very often.

    I recall reading somewhere that Patterson also claimed that Liston hit him the hardest, it's quite possible that the comment was made pre-Liston but I don't remember.

    As for Ray Leonard, he mentioned Duran surprisingly, even though he made the comment after the fight with Hearns.

    Thank you, but how could Patterson claim Liston hit him the hardest before they even fought?
    Did you mean to name someone else?

    The pre-Liston comment was referring to Johansson.

    He chose the fighter he won instead of the fighter he got knocked out.

    Douglas knocked out Mike Tyson. You want to argue that Buster can hit harder than Ruddock, Bruno or Smith?
    Rahman knocked out Lewis. You want to argue that Hasim can hit harder than Tua, Mercer or Tyson?

    That's how it's like dealing with featherfisted Shavers believers, I did it on purpose. Now can you feel my pain?

    ??? I don't understand what you're trying to say.... I'm trying to say that this is the pain of dealing with featherfisted Shavers believers, like how Foreman kayoed Lyle but he won against Shavers. Shavers is not featherfisted, that's what they can't understand

    There is a difference between who hits harder and how hit you harder.
