I recently read an interview with Donald Brashear describing what it was like to take on Joey Kocur in a fight:
"Kocur was hitting me in the helmet like a power hammer and in the end the helmet split! I remember the next day I had a terrible pain, my gums on the left side of my head were hurting even though he was hitting me on the right side of my face. I couldn't chew anything. I wonder what it would be if I did not have a helmet? Too scary."
Too scary indeed. Joe's punching power is legendary. He was regarded as being the hardest puncher of them all. When he caught someone with that right sledgehammer, it was lights out.
Bravo! Very good choices. I would add Joey Kocur and Dave Schultz to the list.
Thanks, I have Kocur in my top 10, but there are many fighters I put ahead of "The Hammer". Gillies, O'Reilly, Johnathan, Fotiu, Nystrom, Domi, Playfair, McSorely, Semenko, and a couple others im unable to think of.
