His punching power is the stuff of legend. Before there was a Tyson, before there was Wilder before there was a Clubber Laing.

There was Earnie Shavers.

I loved watching Shavers fight back in the day. The guy could really pop with his punches, but like already mentioned, stamina issues would plague him from time to time.

If he was fighting at a time other than when his career came about with the likes of Ali, Holmes, Norton, Lyle and others in the mix of opponents, he may have gotten hold of a Championship Belt.

All I do know is I damn sure wouldn't have wanted to swap punches with the guy as I value my brain cells.

RIP Ernie

At his funeral, as they lowered Ernie's casket slowly into its hole, the straps broke, sending his casket crashing to the bottom.

The resultant shockwave knocked all 158 attendees to the ground.

One final, mass TKO by the great Erne Shavers. Good one, Ernie !









OK, so I made it all up.
But, you know, it coulda' happened ........
