Stanley Ketchel, Bob Fitzsimmons, Sugar Ray Robinson and Sam Langford, Roy Jones.

Weird division actually only 1 out my 4 best makes this list, with Greb, Hagler and Monzon(who are my Top 3) being good punchers but, not great.

Can't come up with a list better than that. I'll add Julian Jackson.

Forgot about the Hawk. Was thinking purely about greats which is probably why I missed him.

Well this guy wasnt great or even became a champ but what about Antwun Echols. I believe BHOP said he was the hardest puncher he faced

Bob Fitzsimmons. Been saying this for a while.

Good to see he is getting recognition.

I agree. Fitzsimmons was one of the hardest punchers p4p in history. He has to make this list.

Eugene 'Cyclone' Hart deserves a mention, Freddie Steele too.

seen a bunch of the regular answers that all get my thumbs up
a couple good ones i wasn't expecting
thumbs up again

and i'll add bad bennie briscoe. he hit like he had lead in his gloves and i haven't seen him on the list yet
and roy jones wasn't the "Hardest," but the nature of his delivery and his basically unmatched reflexes and timing and speed made him a devastating puncher at or around MW


and i'll add that the hardest puncher i've ever seen at any weight is julian jackson
i'm waiting for a puncher to come along that hits harder p4p than that man

Who was Echols biggest KO win at 160? Brian Barbosa? Echols had an impressive KO over Charles Brewer, but that was at 168. He really has no business being mentioned among great middleweight punchers.

Go easy on Barbosa, he's my claim to fame. I have a draw with him in an exhibition as amateurs and he was one fight from fighting Hopkins!

Somebody mentioned James Toney in here as a big power puncher, he wasn't.

Mugabi threw some heavy bombs...............Rockin':boxing:
