Default Who hit harder, Tyson or Marciano?

For Tyson his KOs weren't really about the power, it was the sheer speed and skill behind them IMO.

Marciano was a brawler with little orthodox boxing skills, his KOs were about catching his opponents off guard IMO, very strange fighter, so who hit harder?


I think Marciano hit harder, and don't say anything about the weight, it was not a issue here...

best 1 punch power goes to marciano, but it doesnt mean his a more dangerous fighter.

tyson had not only power but lightning fast combos while marciaon threw one shot at the time.

I doubt Tyson could have landed such a powerful punch on someone like Marciano did to Walcott. Don't forget to mention he was getting the living **** beaten out of him.

Tyson hits harder, and of course weight is important.

Marciano damaged more his opponents for two reasons: a) he threw more punches than the average heavyweight, b)gloves were lighter back then, so more injuries happened.

Tyson can do a punch like the one on Walcott and more. In fact, he made something similar to Botha to finish him.
Lewis made a punch even more powerful on Rahman II.

you just dont seem to understand, that medical breakthroughs, eating habits, and training techniques make people weigh more now than 50 years ago, most people were between 185-200 in the 50's it was uncommon to see somebody more than 210. so what if he ko'd cruiserweights, thats just the size people were at back then. damn!

No he didn't. Rocky would get inside and let loose a hellacious bombardment of hooks and uppercuts. Archie Moore said it was like fighting an airplane propeller.
