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.

World boxing may need a villain instead of decent boxers (Part 1)

Just play well, dedicate yourself and keep a decent lifestyle, with few scandals, athletes will be loved. However, those who bring change to the whole game are often the villains.

From around the 1960s, when Muhammad Ali chose his style of cocky arrogance, to the period when Mike Tyson identified himself as “the worst in the world”, the story has not stopped. Until now, Conor McGregor is also following in the footsteps of the seniors to become a “bastard” in the media.

In sports and football, there are famous and arrogant names, but many fans like Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, or basketball with Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal. These people are the ones who have contributed to creating attraction for the subjects they participate in.

Heroes in the dark

The price of becoming a villain is not cheap, because when you choose to play the villain, it means you choose to attract attention in an extreme way. And before people get to know and love it, in the beginning, everyone will hate the arrogant.

To get the title match with Liston, young boxer Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) had to speak up cursing and killing his senior within a few months. Mr. trash talk is so much that the public has turned from interesting feelings to headaches with the mouth of the young boxer. However, Muhammad Ali at that time stopped only when he got the title match he wanted.

Muhammad Ali is also a talkative, single-worded, and extremely arrogant man. During that time, everyone hated Ali, no one wanted to hear a brat bragging about himself.

Honestly, Muhammad Ali’s evil play strategy or any other puncher is a reckless one. Because if Muhammad Ali was beaten to the ground in the match against Liston, he would never have the chance to compete with anyone, and he would not be a world legend.
