Hardest punchers in boxing history

Joe LUIS (Joe Louis) 68-3 (54KO). World heavyweight champion from 1937 to 1950. The main weapon is the right cross - short, aimed and strong. Although he could lay with both an uppercut and a hook, which happened quite often, but this is rather an exception to the rule. Do you want to know what kind of puncher he was? Of the 13 victories scored on points, 5 (38%) came from the last 9 fights, when he was over 36 years old. If he had quit after defeating Walcott in 1948, his result would have been 51 KOs in 61 bouts (83.6%). The ratio of victory by knockout to the number of fights won (%) - 79.

Yep, Joe Louis was a beast.

 

It's crazy that he isn't in the discussion as often as he should with Ali and Tyson as the greatest of all time. Heavyweight or overall.
