Question: Who would you pick as boxing’s all-time hardest puncher and why?

Wayne Alexander (Former European super-welterweight champion)

There are a few that come to my mind. Earnie Shavers and Julian Jackson, in particular, were devastating one-punch KO artists. But I would have to pick Jackson as number one because I watched him live growing up and he went on to become a world champion at light-middleweight and middleweight, knocking out some of the world’s best along the way. With only six of his 55 wins going the distance, you don’t get many better KO records than that.
