Top 3 boxing athletes that have the most powerful punches

KO plays always bring enthusiasm to the audience. And Boxing has many legends with a huge force to contribute to the beautiful KO phase.

1. Ron Lyle

Ron Lyle was a martial artist in the golden age of heavy boxing – the 70s. It can be said that he was the best fighter among those who could not get their hands on the championship.

Victims who endured his blows include Muhammad Ali. Ali easily displayed superior technique and speed when playing against Ron Lyle. However, whenever he was hit by an opponent, Mahammad Ali was really stunned.

But the most worthy match of Ron Lyle must mention a mighty battle between him and George Foreman – a puncher also has terrible power. The battle between these powerful punching machines is one of the most glorious heavyweight battles of all time.

Although Wladimir Klitschko is a technically pruned puncher, the power of his right hand is still truly frightening. The nickname “Dr. Hammer of Steel” also has a reason.

Wladimir Klitschko often entered the game with a slow pace, he also never tried to search for KO so that he was in a situation of unnecessary attack. But 53 KO games out of a total of 64 wins is too much for a technical puncher.

2. Gerry Cooney

Larry Holmes vs Gerry Cooney was a fiery battle between monsters. Cooney suffered the first loss of his career through a TKO from Larry Holmes. Sadly, after that match, Cooney was no longer himself.

However, keep in mind that he defeated Ken Norton and Ron Lyle in just one round before coming to Larry Holmes. His moves are usually blown and left hooks to his stomach.

3. Joe Luis

Perhaps very few people today have come across the name Joe Luis. Although Luis retired more than 60 years ago, this legendary name still has punches worth learning. Joe Luis held the heavyweight championship for 12 years with 25 successful belt defenses.

Joe Luis’ right-hand shots always carry a formidable force. The counter phases are well timing or the intentional attacks are set up in advance. All of them serve a single purpose – to get his right fist in the face of an opponent.

Official information is given from Manny Pacquiao’s office, the match will be exactly as Conor revealed.

Recently, the news that Conor McGregor will be standing with the Philippine boxing legend Manny Pacquiao has received great attention from the boxing fans.

With the management company Paradigm Sports Management and the executive Audie Attar, the match between the two fighting martial arts superstars is expected to be quickly signed without any problems.

As can be seen, the match between Pacquiao and Conor besides attracting the public’s attention is also a charitable effect for individuals who are struggling with the COVID-19 epidemic. Contrary to a “pure entertainment” match like Conor vs. Mayweather, this is a very good way for the 2 stars to promote their matches.

In the most recent broadcast in 2019, Manny Pacquiao overcame Keith Thurman to win the WBA (Super) Welterweight title. On Conor’s side, he also defeated Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 with a knockout of just 40 seconds.

Last month, Pacquiao and McGregor “listened” to each other about a boxing match somewhere in the Middle East. McGregor wrote on Twitter that his next match will be with Manny Pacquiao. However, the current former UFC two-division champion is also considering a match with Dustin Poirier before 2020 ends.

Looks like Manny Pacquiao is thinking of a big bonus and an easy match against Conor McGregor. Anyway, Manny Pacquiao is very busy with politics in her homeland of the Philippines, just as this legend needs a large budget to race for the presidency in the future.

A money match with Conor McGregor would probably be a reasonable choice for Manny Pacquiao at the moment.

Dana White advised Tyrone Woodley to consider retiring

Tyron Woodley’s slumping performance in 3 consecutive defeats is the reason why Dana White’s chairman advised him to think about leaving the ring.

Kamaru Usman, Gilbert Burns and most recently Colby Covington, Tyron Woodley’s three consecutive defeats showed that the former champion was no longer able to compete with the top fists of the weight class.

Despite being expected a lot when reuniting with teammate Jorge Masvidal before the match, Tyron Woodley could not find the explosion, precision and initiative as before. Proof is that in all 4 rounds, he let Covington play overwhelmingly in all aspects of strategy. This can be considered one of the most noticeably fierce boxing matches recently.

Losing to Colby Covington by TKO due to a rib injury, this was the first time Tyron Woodley ended his career at UFC. A milestone shows that “The Choosen One” is no longer as impenetrable as before.

Tyron Woodley completely outperformed an all-out Colby Covington

In this situation, UFC President Dana White must also admit, Tyron Woodley should consider his next move.

Tyron Woodley’s painful expression from a rib injury in the fifth half.

Although not officially stated, however, it can be seen that Tyron Woodley’s chances of staying at UFC are very slim. If lucky to be awarded one more match, the 38-year-old boxer will need a very convincing comeback because in the current situation, the Welterweight weight class is witnessing a lot of young and comprehensive talent than him.

After Tyron Woodley, Dana White plans to retire for Cowboy Cerrone

The draw against Donald Cerrone’s Niko Price at Fight Night 178 could be an unexpected result for the insiders themselves. When “Cowboy” did not show overwhelming opponents and even suffered more severe attacks.

After the match, president Dana White supported this result, but perhaps Cowboy’s slowdown caused him to question that is Cowboy still suitable at the UFC?

In the last 5 matches, Cowboy Cerrone did not win once – the worst achievement in his career. Through the time of guarding the gate in 2 weight classes for too long, it will be difficult for UFC to rank Cowboy with opponents too easily. Even when the chance to regain the defeat against a Pettis is not the same as before, “Cowboy” can not grasp.

Having had 3 consecutive defeats and still being given the chance to play by UFC, it can be seen that Dana White has been very generous with Cowboy.

Even Tyson Fury once frankly vowed to rematch with Deontay Wilder at any cost to prove he was the best. Hopefully, the rematch between the two heavyweight stars will quickly be signed.

Tyson Fury is only interested in the competition of Deontay Wilder

The only thing that mattered to the defending WBC champion was his third rematch with Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder and nothing else.

Many people want “Gypsy King” to face other opponents such as defending champion Anthony Joshua, but Fury wants to settle his grudge with Wilder. It seems that after two games the result of one draw and one win is not enough for Tyson Fury. Fury wanted a third match to end the fight between the two boxers.
