I am asking who was the strongest heavyweight puncher of all time, it isn't neither about boxing techniques nor strong chin. I can't add more than 10 to the poll so I put those. If you have another one comment.

Max Baer should be added to the list! Whether he could hit as hard as Shavers is for debate and impossible to prove, but he certainly should rank in the top 10!

I don't think we should remove these five, how do you know that Peter hits less than Louis?

But Ali wasn't hit with a stong Foreman punch on the face, because of his defence that night. He may got hit by Ernie so he put it. And he didn't try Tyson.

Also, Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey said the strongest is Foreman, they saw them all until 1980, that's why I included so many since 1980.

it has to be Mike Tyson, tyson was the strongest puncher, i am not saying he had the most power behind his punches, but he has to be the strongest puncher meaning he knew when to punch and where to punch to maximize the damage.

yes he was: right uppercut round 6 or 7, go and see
anyway foreman would be a very reasonable choice for me, too

ali did not try tyson
but holmes tried tyson and shavers and said shavers hit harder

Does the logic goes like this

"if Louis and Dempsey say foreman; therefore it must be foreman, and if anyone is stronger it must be someone after foreman"?

if so why did you put in marciano, johnson and frazier?

if the logic is different then can you explain
