Most Powerful Puncher of all time: Frank Bruno

He hit hard but putting him number one is overating it.

I'd pick Shavers, Foreman, Cooney, lyle and Liston to punch harder than Bruno.

I dunno about that. Just because those guys have more name recognition in punching power, doesnt mean Bruno wasnt in the same league though.

most powerful puncher of all time = mike tyson

thats what many boxing experts believed in tysons prime . You have no evidence to refute my claim . There has never been any tests done on tyson punching power to prove or disprove my claim.

Yeah but when they looked over his whole career and compared it with others none still believed this hype building claim.

There has never been any tests done on tyson punching power to prove or disprove my claim.

No but watch his fights and compare them to Shavers, Foremans, Lyles, Liston and Cooneys best fights.

Shavers did more damage to guys with one punch than Tyson did with a combo.

Just because you want Tyson to be the hardest puncher doesn't make it so.
