Not sure if he used it against Margharito in the rematch as I have yet to watch that, I have it here somewhere though. I'll also go with Marciano/Walcott 1 as hardest KO punch I've seen. I heard on Ringside that the photo of Marciano punching Walcott is not the actual KO punch. I wonder if any still photos exist in print of it? I'm sure there are at least screen shots of it online, so I'm sure one can be made these days but one would think that even back then someone would have captured that KO punch and had it published in some newspaper back then. I gotta also go with Tyson/Johnson. Scrub or not, that is one of the hardest punches I've seen Tyson or anyone land on someone, just BAM, the guy's head shook side to side before hitting the canvas.

Oh yeah, what was the Gatti fight where he had one eye swollen shut and still won by knockout with a left hook? I remember HBO used to bring this fight up all the time in all Gatti's fights after that one.
That'll be Chazz Witherspoon who i believe is Tim's nephew..

He's been around a while now and is quite a classy boxer, but leaves a bit to be desired in the chin department.. Think he's fighting Seth 'Mayhem' Mitchell at the end of this month.. And Mitchell's a big puncher, so this could be 'one to watch'.

Marciano Walcott is as classic a 1 punch ko the world will ever see.. Being an old romantic lol, I've got that pic where Walcott looks like he's been force-fed a tripod, hanging on the wall above my bed..

And i think the Gatti fight you're referring to, was the one verses the Dominican, Wilson Rodriguez.. Was voted Ring magazines 'fight of the year' at the time..
