Default Ali's Punching Power?

How do you rate Ali's punching power on a whole? Only ever man to stop Bonavnea & Foreman. Is he a underrated puncher?

He had above average punching power, but could land some damaging blows when sitting down on his shots.

Ali punched as hard as any heavyweight with the difference being in that Ali loved to completely dominate his opponents so never really had to resort to one-punch power but when he had to he did it well and with concusive power

Haven't seen the Bonavena fight, so I cant comment on that, the Foreman ko was due to Foreman's stamina and the accumulation of punches he took from Ali. So no, I wouldnt say Ali was a big puncher, I would say he was average or below average

Average power but he did hit with shots that his opponents couldn't see often, especially from 1964-1967.

i disagree with that, if a fighter knows he can finish the job he's not gonna screw around just for the heck of it.

as a whole i feel his power is underated, with a few exceptions he mostly wore you down with his punches. he wasnt a light puncher but his gifts lay elsewhere.

Nevertheless that was what Ali did in his entire pre-champion career. He called the round in which he'd KO his opponent and if neccessary carried his opponent that far.
