Default Ring Magazines Top 100 Greatest Punchers of All time

Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time

In 2003, Ring Magazine published a list of 100 greatest punchers of all time in boxing, as voted by the magazine's writers.

Various criteria were used for the voting: what percentage of fights by each boxer resulted as knockout wins, how many knockouts and knockout streaks each boxer had, what important rivals he knocked out during his career, and who he couldn't knock out.

List of boxing's all time greatest punchers, as deemed by Ring's writers:

1. Joe Louis
2. Sam Langford
3. Jimmy Wilde
4. Archie Moore
5. Sandy Saddler
6. Stanley Ketchel
7. Jack Dempsey
8. Bob Fitzsimmons
9. George Foreman
10. Earnie Shavers
11. Sugar Ray Robinson
12. Ruben Olivares
13. Wilfredo Gómez
14. Rocky Marciano
15. Sonny Liston
16. Mike Tyson
17. Bob Foster
18. Thomas Hearns
19. Khaosai Galaxy
20. Alexis Arguello
21. Carlos Zarate
22. Max Baer
23. Rocky Graziano
24. Matthew Saad Muhammad
25. Julian Jackson
26. Danny Lopez
27. Gerald McClellan
28. Roberto Duran
29. Rodrigo Valdez
30. Félix Trinidad
31. Jose Cuevas
32. Jim Jeffries
33. Lennox Lewis
34. Bennie Briscoe
35. Marvin Hagler
36. Edwin Rosario
37. Tommy Ryan
38. John Mugabi
39. Joe Frazier
40. Carlos Monzon
41. Tony Zale
42. Michael Spinks
43. Joe Gans
44. Elmer Ray
45. George Godfrey
46. Naseem Hamed
47. Alfonso Zamora
48. David Tua
49. Cleveland Williams
50. Julio Cesar Chavez
51. Tiger Jack Fox
52. Joe Walcott
53. Gerry Cooney
54. Al Bummy Davis
55. Max Schmeling
56. Florentino Fernandez
57. Henry Armstrong
58. Bob Satterfield
59. Al Hostak
60. Jesus Pimentel
61. Eugene Hart
62. Lew Jenkins
63. Harry Wills
64. Tom Sharkey
65. Terry McGovern
66. Jersey Joe Walcott
67. Kostya Tszyu
68. Leotis Martin
69. Buddy Baer
70. Donovan Ruddock
71. Jose Luis Ramirez
72. Tommy Gómez
73. Jose Napoles
74. Kid McCoy
75. Antonio Esparragoza
76. Ricardo Moreno
77. Evander Holyfield
78. Ike Williams
79. Luis Firpo
80. Ricardo Lopez
81. Humberto Gonzalez
82. Bobby Chacon
83. Jock McAvoy
84. Eduardo Lause
85. Eder Jofre
86. Charley Burley
87. Mike McCallum
88. Salvador Sánchez
89. Roy Jones Jr.
90. Rodolfo Gonzalez
91. Nigel Benn
92. Irish Bob Murphy
93. Paul Berlenbach
94. Battling Torres
95. Chalky Wright
96. George Chaney
97. Andy Ganigan
98. Fred Fulton
99. Ingemar Johansson
100. Charley White

As usual, some debate rose among fans concerning this list: many wondered, for example, why wasn't Aaron Pryor, who scored 35 knockouts in 40 fights and beat #20 Alexis Arguello twice by knockout, included. Others wondered why were Edwin Rosario (#36) and Danny Lopez (#26), placed higher than some of their conquerors, in Rosario's case, Julio Cesar Chavez (#50) and Jose Luis Ramirez (#71). In Lopez's case, Bobby Chacon (#82) and Salvador Sánchez (#88). Some also wonder why Muhammad Ali isn't on there.

Rosario was a bigger puncher than Chavez, just cuz a boxer beats another that doesn't make him the stronger puncher...

horrible list
Can someone tell me why Joe Louis is higher than Foreman, and why is he number 1?

Nigel Benn is far far too low, Julian Jackson at 25? What a Joke.
