Was anyone aware that the reason that Tyson's left hook was so deadly was because he is a naturaly left handed?

Joe Frazier- also left handed, but fought orthodox.

I did not put Joe Frazier on the poll bc many people, including me, believe that the best left hook in the history of boxing is Joe's(the poll would have been no contest).

Frazier had a faster hook then Ali's left jab, IMO. Easily Frazier.

Frazier's is probably the most famous left-hook, and possibly the most famous single punch in history. It was a thing of beauty. And boy did he throw a lot of them.

However, it can be argued that Sonny Liston possessed the best left hook in heavyweight history. He didn't use it as often as Frazier, but it was probably more devastating.

Bob Foster also had a KILLER left hook.

Pipino Cuevas' left hook could knock down a brick wall.

And of course, Ray Robinson's was poetry in motion.

That Trinidad left-hook was poetry in motion.

Although this fighter does not belong in the upper crust of boxing society his left hook is consistently on-target to the liver... "IRISH" MICKEY WARD!!!

^^^AGREED about JCC and Micky

Oscar De La Hoya has a ****in great left hook

As did Hopkins

But Joe Fraizer had the best coz 90% of the punches he threw was the left Hook

Joe Frazier probably of all time.

Tyson really swinged a left hook in there. It was awesome. He knocked Eddie Richardson out with a FraZier like left hook. Best left hook i've ever seen. And 13 years later, he knocked down Lou Savarse in a matter of seconds with also one of the best left hooks ever imo.

Dempsey's was short and powerfull. It was great to see a little guy throw it so quickly. By far the fastest left hook ever imo.

Lacy's nickname may be "Left Hook"....but he is actually a better puncher with his overhand right & right uppercut, than with his left hook.

His left hook, is nothing special.

Dempsey's left hook might just be as good as Joe's. But it nowhere near was dramatic and it didn't cause as much damage.

Joe's first, Dempsey at a VERY CLOSE second.

Henry Cooper, oh yes, he had a powerful, powerful left hook. He floored Ali with it! He had a decent record.. Not an all time great but a very good and noteworthy fighter. I loved the fight with Joe Erskine with Joe hanging over the ropes and the first/second round knockdown then Erskine slipped. He had some great fights :P
