Not necessarily a fighter with big one punch power,but a guy who was great at breaking down even the toughest fighters with his relentless attack

I'm basing this on stories and not film so I'm not sure how he compares to more modern fighters but Harry Greb has to be a strong candidate.

Armstrong, Greb an JCC are all great picks. I'd add Pryor, Frazier and Dempsey to that list too.

Ha ha, dont worry British fan! No special favours.

A good modern example of a human windmill was Steve Collins when he faced Chris Eubank the second time. No defense or finesse, just sheer pressure and punch output. I felt that this version of Collins circa 1995 would have given peak Roy Jones the toughest fight of his career. I'd still bet on Roy but hell it would be a good fight.

i should hope not to! lol

i agree with you about collins and a potential fight with jones
i also think RJJ would have taken it but it would have been the toughest fight of his career imo

Yes it would be a tough fight for Jones, Roy would have no problems hitting Collins but i'd fancy that he'd spend a fair amount of time being bulled to the ropes to withstand barages of high volume punching, not devestating punches but point scorers. I just cant see Roy knocking him out, Collin's chin was something else. Roy would have to cut him to force anything like a stoppage.

I think jones could potentially slow him down by working the body,but would obviously rather keep it at a distance.
maybe even score 1 or 2 flash KD i dont know.but wouldnt seriously hurt collins with head punches
RJJ may get a bit frustrated with the bullishness of collins especially when he was getting pushed back often
its such an intriguing match-up the more i think about it

maybe not the best, but it's pretty damn amazing when a man of vitali klitschko's size and age throws over 1000 punches a fight. vitali as a physical specimen is completely underrated.

Margarito epitomizes volume punching. Frazier is great to.

Saw three Marciano fights on Classic fights he has to be the top volume puncher i have seen. Joe Frasier was good also.

I'm not sure if he has been mentioned by I think that Marcel Cerdan should have his name thrown in the mix. I got ahold of a highlight of some of his fights throughout WW2 and the guy was really amazing. He fights the way that I imagine Harry Greb fighting, super aggressive, very physical and always throwing explosive, fast punches. He really just overhwhelmed guys with his combination fo speed and pure relentlessness and from what I've seen of him his defense is pretty damn good as well.

On a sidenote there is a cool clip on the HL of him shaking hands with Max Smcheling.

Sandy Saddler and Jack Kid Berg were both all out volume punchers..
