"He hits like a man swinging an anvil on a chain." I can still remember that line 30 years later, said by some sportswriter about George Foreman.

Thank you for commenting. Didn't even think anyone would even find this quiz. Foremans power was incredible and he didnt even look like he put puch effort into his punches.

Fun quiz. I'm surprised that Mike Tyson isn't in the top three. Also wanted to bring a little typo to your attention: the quiz is called "Hardest Hitting Heavyweight Bpxers".

Thank you David!! I have just changed it. Tyson was a very powerful heavyweight but it was also his speed and aggression that lead to his many knockouts. In terms of raw power, common opponents of Tyson and Foreman/Shavers etc have consistently listed the latter as being the more heavy handed. Holyfield who faced Tyson and a 42 year old Foreman said that even the older Foreman hit much harder than Tyson. Thank you for taking the quiz!
