Naseem Hamed has more explosives in his fists...if he had hit marquez with a bomb, i can bet he wouldn't have gotten up.

He's right, I'm not a pac or a naz fan but i'd way rather watch a Pacquaio fight than a Naseem Hamed fight. Hamed may have punching power but he doesn't use it as well as Pacquiao. I bet MAB could tell you who hits harder though( Im a MAB fan).

I reckon Naseem Hamed probably has the most punching power, but Pacquiao is still the better of the two to watch.

True, i think Pacs speed is the difference Hamed probably hits harder but has more trouble landing those shots.

Marco said after the Hamed fight that he doesnt hit as hard as they said he did. After the Pac fight he said that Pac hit very hard and that was the difference in the fight. So Im going with the guy that took both their punches. Pac hits harder.

In fairness, Hamed never landed a flush powershot on MAB so I wouldn't go by that. Fighters say stupid things...McCullogh said that Morales was the hardest puncher he'd faced(including Hamed)then after the Harrison fight he said that Harrison was, which both seem laughable.

Naz was generally a counterpuncher yet still had awesome 1 punch KO power off the back foot and from short punches so I'd give it to him.

I think you misread my post, it wasn't comparing MAB & Morales' power, it was Hamed and Morales.

Without doubt Morales hits harder than MAB but he doesn't hit harder than Hamed and there's no way Harrison hits harder than them both.

Hamed would put his ENTIRE body on one punch. No **** he'll hit hard. Its not even about following through with your shoulders and back. He leaps with his whole body. Youdon't need to land clean or flush to feel the power. You can feel a man has heavy hands even though you don't get hit clean.

hamed had more power, plus he ko'd people with either hand. he was little and not muscular at all, you wonder how he gets that power.

Yes he did land on Barrera, look at the fight again. One time Hamed landed flush and hard and Barrera invited him in for more. Yes Wayne is crazy.Dont see why Morales's power is laughable to you. Personally I think Morales would KO the Prince in his prime.I mean Morales now and the Prince in his prime ay what ever weight.

Do you think MAB was at his peak when he faced Pac? I was just curious to know if the outcome would have been different if Pac in his prime (which is now) had met MAB during his prime (which was closer to the time he had won the belt from Hamed). What do you guys think??

I've seen the fight several times. Hamed's timing was all to **** in that fight and the shots that he did land weren't anything like full power.

Morales does have good power but I do think it's laughable that McCullogh says he punches harder than Hamed, and even more so that he says Harrison punches harder still. I actually think that of all the top guys today, Morales would have the best chance of beating Naz at his best but it wouldn't be by KO.

It's hard to believe that he could become more dominating than he already is. Is it me, or does anyone else here feel that Pac Man is just recycling these mexican opponents? If it is not Barrera than it's Marquez or Morales. Ok, he has yet to face Morales, but is there anyone else out there that you would like to see Pac fight other than the above mentioned?? Is there anyone else worth fighting other than the above mentioned?

Pacman will develop his uppercuts and vastly improve his right hand. Also roach seems to think he can still be in better shape than he has been. Thats scary for alot of fighters. ;)

Dominating??? What??? He didnt dominate JMM oh three rounds u call dominating. The truth is he dominated Jmm for the first round and thats it.Barrera is a diff. story,cant wait till he fights Barrera again and see who DOMINATES.

From you "hamed is awkward, awesome 1 punch KO power off the back foot and from short punches,timing was all to **** in that fight and the shots that he did land weren't anything like full power."

Somebody should have taught him how to punch properly or maybe we'll see Pacquiao punching off the back foot to determine who's really more powerful.

Hamed is the bigger puncher but Pacquaos speed and relentless attacking style make him more dangerous.

Hamed is the more powerful puncher. He throws his power with planted feet and good weight transfer, whereas pacquiao seems to just make people lose their balance by throwing awkward punches.

The names mentioned would be great opponents for Pac. But why is that he has been playing musical chairs with the mexican's? Money!? I bet you after he fights Morales he will face Barrera instead of any o the above names you have mentioned.

I think Pac has been playing musical chairs with the Mexicans because Mexicans are the best and most respected boxers in the lighter weightclasses in boxing. If you notice, you're not gonna get the glory fighting in lower weight classes unless you fight Mexican fighters. I think Pacquiao doesn't get much credit for beating his fellow Filipino fighters or other Asian boxers.

Sure, money is also a very big factor but you gotta remember, the bigger the money, the tougher the opponent. In order to be the best, you have to beat the best, and that is what Pacquiao is trying to accomplish in his career.

i agree-nice comment:
being a filipino,nothing to a shame of; mexicans felt that filipinos are under rated boxers. i know pacquiao will break this saying and prove to them that we have a right to becomes sumpreme. :boxing:

I think Pacman is much better puncher than Naseem.Pacman's left punch gives awful feelings to watchers.

I think Pacman is much better than Hamed. For most of his fights, Hamed acted like a comedian in the ring. Hamed clowned his way into the fight. You gotta ask somehow if its a real fight or what.
In Pacman's bouts, you know its for real. The blood from the punches showed you that boxing is not for comedians.
Somehow there's a big question on Hamed's power specially after the assbeating he took from MAB.

Pac Man or Naseem Hamed??

Naseem Hamed, no doubt. He's a phenomenal puncher. Pacquiao has good punching power, particularly with his efficient straight left cross, but in terms of overall punching power, Naseem takes it hands down IMO (and a lot of other people's). Naseem has a really wide and unconventional base/stance, which allows him to produce a lot of power, and his punches come from different angles making his shots that much more dangerous, that much more likely to produce knockouts; it's the shots you don't see that often do the most damage.
