Are you unfamiliar with how Foreman used to swing his wrecking balls?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.
