The Hardest Hitting Heavyweight - A Look Back at the Battles of the 'Black Destroyer'

ALAMEDA, Calif. - Californer -- 'Earnie Shavers: The Man, The Legend, The Punch' is a riveting documentary that celebrates the extraordinary career of the man Muhammad Ali once called "The Acorn". Known for his devastating punching power, Shavers was a two-time world heavyweight championship challenger and remains one of the hardest punchers in boxing history, with an impressive 76.7% knockout rate.
The documentary highlights his early career struggles and the journey to becoming a top heavyweight contender. With rare footage, interviews with boxing experts, and insights from Shavers himself, the film provides a comprehensive look at the man behind the legend. Shavers was an exceptionally heavy puncher who stalked his opponents, setting them up for his thunderous right, which was responsible for many of his knockouts, although Angelo Dundee said iin a Sports Illustrated mid-1970s article said "He can get you out of there with any kind of shot" as evidence in the many clips you will see in the video.
