    Francis Ngannou apparently has the punch record at 129,000 units (whatever that means). They say his punch is like getting hit by a sledgehammer or a car.

    I tried to look up the hardest puncher before him but can't seem to find anything definitive. I see some mentions of Mike Tyson, Joe Louis, and the like. Was this just something folks weren't keeping record of or was there some record holder that Francis Ngannou displaced?

    Francis is not the record holder.

    unofficial its Conor McGregor cuz his avg. punch packs 845 LBF

    I don't think it'd be that competitive (like Conor and Cowboy pt. 2).

    In MMA, I'd say the hardest P4P punchers over the last 10 years (in no particular order) are:

    Rumble
    Hunt
    Ngannou
    Conor
    Lineker
    Hendo
    Fedor
    Lombard

    Chuck hit hard, but that was in an era where he had the luxury of fighting a lot of people with next to no striking defence.

    I think he held the record because he was one of a few to ever be measured, and I heard it got beat since then.

    The hardest puncher should have a lot of KO's on his resume. Conor doesn't have a handful of them. Lombard has a lot of them.

    Conor out and Jeremy Stephens in.
    I'd even go as far as saying that Stephens isn't just in front of Conor in terms ot p4p-power, but also in absolute power.

    No Carwin? He did not even need huge haymakers - just a 1-2 combo or an uppercut.
