I was about to start downloading some Julian Jackson fights, and as I read his blurb, I was getting really excited about watching his fights...,

but it brought me to the question of who were the all time P4P hardest punchers?

There are some that wear down opponents over time before finally ending it, but the ones we are looking for here are the one punch knockout artist.

here is a list I found, and of course it is up for debate.

I know of the top few..., but here's you guys provide us with much needed info on who was the Hardest Puncher.

 

1. Julian Jackson (widely considered p4p hardest hitter)

2. Mike Tyson (I think the hardest puncher in history)

3. Nigel Benn

4. Gerald McCllelan

5. Thomas Hearns

6. John Mugabi

7. Razor Ruddock (Tyson said he hit him the hardest)

8. Acelino Freitas (I dislike him, but he can bang)

9. Lennox Lewis (Tyson, Ruddock, Rock, Botha)

10.Rocky Marciano

11.Earnie Shavers

12.Arturo Gatti (Ruelas, Gamache)

13.George Foreman (Norton, Frazier)

14.Felix Trinidad

15.Archie Moore

16.Manny Pacquiao(Mab,Jmm)"Harder Hitting Featherweight of all time"

 

Honorable mentions: David Tua, Edwin "El Inca" Valero

 

Who is in your list of top 10 P4P Hardest Punchers?

i'd have Shavers top 3, Foreman a lot higher up

 

i'd also have Duran and Frazier in the top 10

 

Gatti and Trinidad as well?!

 

neither of those were big punchers

I don't agee with gatti at all but trinidad was a very big puncher

 

Also agreed. Trinidad had a frightening KO percentage for a while, while Gatti was a slugger who pressured people with volume work, but rarely won a fight because of any real punching power.

I can't really say i'm too clued up on the p4p hardest punchers list. I know ESPN did one (i think it was ESPN). A few names i can think of: Jimmy Wilde, Carlos Zarate, Archie Moore, Vitali Klitschko, Mike Tyson, Joe Louis, Sam Langford, George Foreman, Sugar Ray Robinson, Julian Jackson......

In 2003, the writers of Ring Magazine published a ranking of the 100 greatest punchers of all-time. Not unlike an all-time pound-for-pound ranking, this list compares fighters across different weight categories and different eras. As such, it's entirely open for debate ...

Can anybody see Vitali Klitschko? I couldn't. I thought he'd get a mention in a top 100. I mean the guy does have a 90%+ KO ratio.

 

I see your point but he's not what I'd call a knockout artist, he spends alot of time softening opponents up 1st then finishes them when they've got nothing left rather that sparking guys early with single shots

The list was compiled in 2003, and if you look at it, it seems to be composed of guys who had retired by then...

If they made a new list, I'm sure Vitali would be on it.

He may have softened people up to get the KO, but he could only do that because his general punching was pretty concussive, and probably still is.
