Fury agrees Wilder bigger puncher than Mike Tyson ,Rocky Marciano

Thoughts??? Is wilder a bigger puncher than Mike Tyson or Rocky Marciano?



Reporter from Yahoo sports : "my question is for tyson your former trainer Ben Davison said after he knocked out Luis Ortiz, that he thought he was the biggest puncher in heavyweight history you said you were a boxing historian. Do you agree with that? Do you say he is a bigger puncher than a Mike Tyson or Rocky Marciano somebody like that "

. Fury : "you know great question and the answer to that would be numbers don't tell lies this mans knockout ratios alone say hes the greatest puncher in history in the heavy weight division".

He's a far better one punch KO artist than Tyson, albeit at a lesser level. As far as the hardest of all time? Hard to say, he hasn't ever fought anyone known to be durable, Duhaupas was "a bit tough" and tbf he soaked up a lot of shots until the ref waved it off after a 25 punch combo from wilder.

I do think Wilder is up there but it's hard to make a case due to his lack of quality opposition, his best opponent is Fury who featherfisted old cruiser Cunningham dropped like a sack of shit with one punch.

That we need to go back around 50 years in search of a one punch KO artist to compare Wilder to says a lot about his power.

It does but at the same time how many brutal kos would wlad have if he fought Wilders resume. Context does matter

Boxing, like life, is full of ifs and buts. What has happened is complex enough to analyze without going into what might have happened, if.

Not sure how Fury can make that claim. He's never been punched by the likes of Tyson, Marciano, Shavers, Klitschko, Foreman, or any of the other big hitters from the past.

There's nothing to back up that claim other than Wilder's record, and that is nothing to hang a hat on with many of his opponents being way down in the heavyweight rankings as has already been pointed out.

It's in his best interest to say that. Faced the biggest puncher of all time, was knocked down, miraculously got up, and should've won. Makes him look better.

It's impossible to know for sure, but Wilder is in the conversation, and his top level, one punch power is frightening.

I mean, it's a valid statement. Marciano was a cruiserweight by today's standards; foreman of course could make am arguement

We're also disregarding the fact that wilder can't box for shit, his power has been the trump card in his fights.

How relevant is that to the question of whether he is the biggest puncher of all time?
I think it's relevant to the debate.

Big punchers like Wlad and Tyson (Mike) all were far more well rounded boxers. Their overall power delivery system was better. Wlad could time his punches extremely well and pick and choose when to sit down and really throw the power. Catch opponents off guard with something they don't see coming and it all added to their natural power. Kind of like how Mayweather wasn't known to be a big puncher in his welterweight days but had the acccuracy and timing which allowed him to have enough power for guys to respect him.

Wilder just seems to swing for the fences and sometimes he lands sometimes he doesn't. But more often than not even if they see it coming or it's a poorly timed shot or lands in an odd place (like on Ortiz's forehead), they still go down once Wilder lands.
