Neither Mike Tyson nor Deantai Wilder take first place when it comes to the biggest heavyweight boxing striker.

Tyson may have been known for his tremendous knockout strength in the ring, but a study by William Hill found that he is inferior to Deontay Wilder and Shannon Briggs when it comes to the heaviest striker in the heavyweight division.

William Hill has analyzed every world heavyweight champion since 1962, when the WBA world champion was first presented to fight more than 100 winning rounds to decipher the boxer with the fastest knockout in history.

The former double world heavyweight champion Briggs heads a bunch of the toughest batters in the division. This scenario is due to the fact that Briggs need an average of just 2.71 rounds to knock out his opponent during his 60 career wins.

The deadliest knockout machine in modern boxing is Deantey Wilder, who ranks second on the list.

The bronze bomber may have lost his WBC title to Tyson Fury, but he is closely following Briggs with an average of just 3.12 rounds per knockout with his 42 wins.

Third and fourth on the list are former WBO world champion Tommy Morrison and British boxing legend Frank Bruno, who needed an average of 3.13 and 3.35 rounds to knock out.


Tyson, who ruled as the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990, closes the top five with an average of 3.38 rounds per knockout in his 50 career wins.

Of the 55 boxers analyzed, David Haye (3.75) is in the top 10 in ninth place. He is one position ahead of George Foreman (3.86).

Lennox Lewis (5.02) is in 27th placeth. Elsewhere, Wladimir Klitschko (5.13) – 30thTyson Fury (6.03) ranks 45ththand Roy Jones Jr. (6.42) is 47 years oldth.

At the bottom of the list is Muhammad Ali (8.68).

Tony Smith, Director of Marketing at UK William Hill, said: “We thought we’d see which boxers have the fastest knockout in heavyweight history.

Perhaps surprising, but Mike Tyson is only fifth on the list. The former undisputed champion knocked out his opponents on average every 3.38 rounds. This is a record set by ring king Shannon Briggs and Deontay Wilder, Tommy Morrison and Frank Bruno.

“Our study found some more interesting statistics. Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is in last place. Tyson Fury is also on the list.

“While David Haye is in the top 10 in ninth place.”
