I would be interested in that too. All I know is that he is renowned for his punching power, just nobody has it on tape.RoccoMarciano said:It would be interesting to know for sure just how hard the Great John L. could actually hit. He had a very hard punch, according to contemporary accounts, but it would be nice to see it on film.
As far as I know the only film available is of him and Corbett clowning around a bit after he was on in years - way after he was done fighting.bill1234 said:I would be interested in that too. All I know is that he is renowned for his punching power, just nobody has it on tape.
Shavers never had his measured though, and neither did Tyson. Bill Cayton wouldn't let him.tommygunn said:tyson had the hardest punch ever measured including foreman, frazier and the klit broz. he hit at 1750 psi, foreman was 1600 psi.
Tyson? He got them with about 2 combo's in a row. The first one knocked you down, or hurt you, and the 2nd one finished you off unless you could keep away or with stand the moment.. Shavers on the other hand was 1 big punch and you were out.PrettyBoyFloyd said:I said Tyson. But it was a toss up with me between Tyson and Shavers
tommygunn said:lennox lewis should be on the poll to bill, he had a pretty devastating right hand. the punch that ko'd rahman was an absolute peach.
