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.
