I was just thinking about Cuevas and where his place may be on an all time punchers list. I can't say Im well versed with his career (basicly the Hearns and Duran fights), but everything I have read points to a brutal puncher.

Its also interesting that he won a piece of the welterweight title before he had turned 19. Nice call Joe.

Default pound for pound punchers

julian jackson - simple short blasts probably refined on small heavybag.
gerald mclellan - tennis style slams with rotation down to the ankles.
mike tyson - bad intentions
jack dempsey - vic darchinyan style followthrough punches in sparring, adjusted haymaker style hooks and crosses that he could set up in fights
george foreman - very bad intentions, practiced on the heavybag
joe louis - bodyweight punches refined on the heavybag
vic darchinyan - lunging punches with a occasional back leg followthrough like baseball pitcher tim lincecum
bob fitzsimmons - upright, facing target stance, straight over or underhand blasts with either hand. practiced on a ball, not a bag, tied to a rope, not a chain.
jimmy wilde - worked in a mine from like, age 2.

Yeah, most of the usual ones have already been mentioned. I think Jackson had the worst KO's I've seen, to the point where you actually thought he had killed his opponents.

Hearns, if he landed flush, is about the only guy that I know of who could KO anyone from WW to CW. His KO's of Cuevas, Duran, Shuler, Snyder cross all of the aforementioned weight divisions and there have been very few in the history of the sport that could actually blow out a guy with one single punch from 147 to 200 pounds. That's freaky ****e!

His blow out of Duran is especially incredible given Duran's chin and defensive prowess, however absurd the size difference.

I'd also like to give Michael Carbajal a shout out. He knocked out good opponents from start to finish. His right hand was often his own personal bail out plan. It got him out of more tough spots (Chiquita, Arce) than he probably cared to be in. It generally only took him one good shot to flatten his opponent too. Where most little guys scored their stoppage victories by pummeling their opponents into submission, Carbajal could do it in an instant.

I'd love to have seen Jimmy Wilde in action. If only half the stories told about his punching power are true he must have been a monstrous hitter.

Joe Louis
Sonny Liston

Damn, two many HWs on my list, have to give it some more thought. Didn't start watching much lighter weights until the last few years, Pac, Hamed and Darchinyan come to mind.

Of course best punchers and hardest punchers don't always coincide.
