Default He is known as the hardest one-punch hitter in history

Both Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes said Earnie Shavers was the hardest puncher they ever met.
So, here's a couple of Shavers rights: against Ali at 9:45; and against Holmes, that famous blow at 2:24 (quote: "the hardest punch a man ever got up from to win a fight").

It's about single-punch power.

For sure, Iron Mike was more devastating, but fighters who faced him said it was his speed that hurt them. They never saw them coming.

For a pound-for-pound choice, Julian Jackson is a good pick.
