    You don't know much, bro'

    At 175, there have been FEW fighters who could punch like Michael Spinks could.
    He was devastating, & was widely regarded as the best hitter (lb4lb)in the sport, while he reigned there.

    In fact, I think he belongs much higher on the list.

      My complaints:

      Hagler was rated too high. Above Edwin Rosario even!
      Julian Jackson should have been top 10.

        this is exactly my point, it is a disgrace he is not placed better. Spinks was a one punch ko artist with either hand at LH and has a few of the best ko's ever. Agree about Haglertoo, a strong puncher but not a ko artist. Surely there is close to 100 ko artists when we are talking ever.

            tyson should be at least to 5 he wasnt south paw or orthodyx when he punched usually cause he had knock out power in both hands. ive seen him knockdown and hurt someone with a single jab that alone should catipult him way up there.

              Ali said that Liston hit harder than Foreman.

              Chuvalo is not even on the list.

              Marciano is way below Louis.

              No one should take this list seriously.

                The Ring's list is of "the greatest punchers" not "the most powerful punchers"; it is not based purely on power. Though power is the main characteristic, being a good puncher consists of form, accuracy, precision, handspeed, and ability to put punches together. With that in mind, i agree with The Ring's selection of Joe Louis at #1.

                As for the rest of the list, i have my disagreements, but that's with any list.

                  Joe Louis is definetley #1. No one else has punches that contain as much power, accuracy, speed, and precision like Louis.

                  I think Tyson could definetly move up. He was like Louis, but with a bit more power, but lacking the accuracy and handspeed.

                    I refuse to believe that in the history of boxing there are not 100 fighters who banged harder than RJJ and Holyfield.
                    Me too,poor list.

                      I think Gerald McClellan is the hardest puncher at 160 ever. He has like 20 first round KO's in 27 fights or something. Alot of them are pretty brutal too. He should be ranked higher.
