Can\'t get front wheel off of XR

I bought a new tire n stuff today at the enduro...went to change it...couldn't get the front axle out...so i decided to try to get the tire off w/o removing the rim...had to cut it off, lol, that worked for gettin the tire off...but then i coudln't get the new tire between the rim/front right fork...so whattaya know i just took the right fork off...and when i got it off i was messin around bounching on it and i could push it like 3/4 the way together with my arms alone...so i decided while it's apart im gonna rebuild the front shocks...but here's the deal...a locked up front axle...WTF DO I DO??? ive used a steel punch and sledge hammer to try, and it hasn't moved even an 1/8'th of an inch....any idea's people???

before you pound on that axle any more... make sure you check the tire pressure....
