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.
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.

I said Tyson. But it was a toss up with me between Tyson and Shavers
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.

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.

I know. I ran out of slots.:( Also, the right hand that Lewis KO'd Rahman with, it wasn't a peach, it was a cherry bomb.
