reading the opening post makes me instantly think of the right hand he landed on Duran. the 'lazer' descrip fits that punch perfectly.

joe louis

julian jackson

of course the aforementioned hearns

earnie shavers. no one has ever called this man a lazer.

danny lopez had about as brutal of a right hand you could throw at 126



jackson and shavers both hit dudes like they wanted them dead
wouldnt call them true masters at dropping it
but they swung a big stick


there's a list
add em to it

If I gotta pick one it's gotta be Tommy Hearns.

Joe Louis had a great right hand also. I don't see why Mayweather doesn't belong in the mix. He has dominated great fighters with the right hand. If Manny decides to ever take that fight, the world will see just how good that right and is. Accuracy and precision as good as any I'd say.

It wouldn't be an issue if there wasn't such a blatant bias. How many people got away with the Floyd KFC pictures, how long did they let steelhammer spout racist crap to posters including mods, how come Pastrano was never banned for his racist threads and yet I get banned without warning for something not even remotely close to the disgusting behaviour of those examples, and believe me there are far more. I've seen someone have a picture of Roger Mayweather fused with a chimp and only be informally warned by a mod in a thread they were posting in.

That's all I will say in this thread, this isn't the place for this discussion.

On right hand but looking at it from a different angle, Jim Watt had a very under rated and probably the best right jab I've seen, was like a homing missile, not the fastest of punches but it rarely missed and carried plenty of weight.

Check out the right hand of Veeraphol Sahaprom in my other thread in their 2nd, and 3rd matches especially. Against as good a fighter as Nishioka is, to land it so often and with such frequency is highly impressive. He uses his right hand, as I've now noticed through all the southpaw fights I've seen of his, as a jab when he fights southpaws. He has an amazing jab, but uses it very little and ends up throwing lead right after lead right against southpaws.

Another guy, while we're off the main topic of general power and speed etc, is Ernesto Marcel. He used it exactly like Mayweather does today and probably just as good. Underrated fighter in general though.

It's pretty difficult to notice here due to quality, but this is his last fight, against a prime Arguello and you can see it in action, albeit only in a short, bad quality highlight video that is a highlight more for Arguello than it is for Marcel considering Arguello only won about 4 or 5 rounds out of the 15 and got a bit of a boxing lesson.

for two reasons

your opponent's left
and his right


lol!


you are an open book when you throw a right hand to the body from far enough away to actually punch hard with your right hand


mike tyson also threw an unbelievable right hand to the body, once he either got under his man's jab, or was able to back him up to the ropes or make him have to set his feet to keep mike away

he was lucky enough to be built with hands than generate power close enough to land a hard right hand from up close.
serious power

i wouldnt call it a striaght right hand though
he turned his knuckles over and generate power however he was able to land it, almost like a hook

1. Tommy Hearns (the best right hands I've ever seen. a beauty)
2. Lennox Lewis (perfect timing, best right uppercuts in the game. Sometimes he was a little too distracted tho)
3. Wladimir Klitschko (not a great brawler, he has poor balance, but he's developed a perfect combination of the 3 criteria I've listed below. best left-right combination in the game today: a true scientist)

Hell, I'll go with a top ten. Vastly arguable :)
Criteria: 1) power, 2) accuracy, 3) timing

4. Max Baer
5. Joe Louis (deadly accuracy, but his true name of the game was his overall boxing skills and speed)
6. Ernie Shavers
7. Rocky Marciano (tremendous right hooks)
8. Carlos Monzon (a true bomber, not that accurate tho)
9. George Foreman (lacked a little accuracy specially in his prime but had devastating power)
10. Rocky Graziano (similar to Monzon but less mean)

Honorable mentions: Alexis Arguello, Ray Robinson, Kelly Pavlik, prime Tyson

I'd hate to fight Monzon he's an optical illusion. Doesn't look the fastest but somehow lands easily on elite fighters and slips or blocks their punches effortlessly.

When i think right hand to the body two guys spring to mind - Roy Jones & Mike Tyson!

Jones dint throw it that often and rarely with such effect but im throwing his name out there anyway because that right hand body punch KO of Hill was That Good!
Tyson set up a lot of his KO's with a hard right hand dig to the body, his KD of Ribalta (Right to the body right uppercut to the head) is just beautiful to watch.... He really set Bruno up bad (among others) with it for the finish after ducking the left hook in their second bout, actually he smashed a great one in in their first fight too before hammering home a classic Tyson uppercut followed by the left hook


Tommy Hearns is another, he whipped them in and not only did they hurt a guy and wear him down they looked just flat out painful! Stinging shot


Right hands up stairs, Tommy again, he's the Daddy in that department as far as im concerned.

G Man had a Monster of a right (rival'd only by his left hook downstairs)

Joe Louis threw it perfectly and with devastating results...

Perhaps not in those guys league but i always enjoyed watching Tim Witherspoon and Riddick Bowe whale away with overhand rights....

Give me the power of a Hearns right hand over Mayweather's anyday but good call, not on their level of power but its a great shot. He doubles and triples with it and on occasion even quadruples it, he sneaks it in from various angles, counters beautifully with it, scores up AND down well with it.... Its a great punch for him

Not quite Hearns-esque but Tito Trinidad had an excellent right cross, often overlooked because of how great his left hook was. Tito threw it like a baseball pitcher and it had range

Tszyu needs a mention too, when he got that bazooka like right zeroed in you knew about it...

Say what u will about David Haye lord knows there is plenty of negatives but he had one of the most brutal right crosses the Cruiserweight division has ever seen - im talking about when he shot it out straight, behind the jab usually. Not that crappy looping one.....

And lets not forget Suzy Q! Marciano could BANG with that right
