Tommy Morrison was one of the hardest hitting heavyweights of the last 25 years, morrison is underrated his wins over foreman and razor ruddock are great wins and is fight with razor ruddock is a classsic

His offensive skills and par were on par with many heavyweight greats. Had he a better chin and discipline he could have been among them.

He also showed a great will to win with 2 broken hands and a broken jaw against Joe Hipp.

Morrison had some very good offensive skills, especially the left hook. But his chin and his stamina were both subpar. He was so outclassed against Lewis that you had to re-evaluate his somewhat limited true potential.

That fight showed me that his chin and stamina were not his only limitations. Lewis carved him up and completely outboxed Morrison before finishing him. Morrison had no plan B. Morrison had Power, speed, and a very powerful left hook. But outside of that he was weak in a lot of areas not limited to his chin.

He was probably the most exciting heavyweight in boxing when Mike went to prison.

Top 5 all-time Left-hook.

This video has him at #1. Hard to argue...

IMO Frazier & Tyson had great left hooks but the others in that video would not make my top 5, their left hook power was not world class against top caliber opposition so i would include Walcott, Charles, Louis, Holyfield, Dempsey and Foreman ahead of them but its just my opinion
