tysons most effective technique was his movement and defense. it set up both of those punches.

Nice thread :cool:

I think Tyson's right hand was harder. His left hook was also very effective, they both were, thats why he had such great combos. But i guess since this discussion has been going on for longer, i still pick his righty.

The left, clearly. This is likely because Tyson was a converted southpaw.

the left hook . Tyson was naturally left handed . he had more power in his left hand than his right.

believe or not that uppercut was just a glancing blow.

Tyson could put a lot more leverage in his right hand. Look at the Michael Johnson ko. That was his hardest punch he ever threw imo. You could see how heavy his right hand was. I dont think his left could do as much damage.

Tyson's left was more effective but his right is more powerful... he said it himself I don't remember where...

Btw versatile. This thread has the wrong title. Our argument was about the most POWERFULL punch. Not most effective. Then i might even agree that his left hook was more effective. but powerfull? nah.

if not more powerful then why wasnt he a southpaw then

I think after his fight with Bruno he said his right hand was more powerful (after KOing him with a left), and that he'd been trying to land the right all night, but he just couldn't get it to work.

EDIT: It was apparently not after Bruno (as he didn't KO Bruno with a left, for one thing). I don't remember what fight it was, but he KO'ed him with a left, then was being interviewed and said he wanted to hit him with his right because it was stronger.
