Muhammad Ali had the best jab i have ever seen.
Sonny Liston had the longest jab and could use it
Wlad Klitschko is a tremendous jabber, its his main weapon
Vitali`s jab is not as good as Wlads although its decent
Holmes had a fast jab but it was far from the best
Lennox had a long jab but it was only a paw `a distration`

Holmes was beaten to the jab by Michael Spinks over 30rds he was also out-jabbed by both Carl Williams & Bonecrusher Smith and very fortunate to get the victory over both of them

Wlad has a pole-of-a-jab which makes him very difficult to beat, however it can be slipped like Corrie Sanders did and left-hooks fired in over or around it.

Lennox had a long jab that he never used to full effect, he was easily out-jabbed by Bruno & Mercer, if Lewis had a jab like Wlad`s he would have been a dominant champion.

Vitali has a long decent jab yet he leaves himself wide-open when he throws it, yet because he has only ever fought Class B/C fighters they have not been able to punish him.

Sonny Liston had one of the great jabs of Boxing History it was a murderous punch that would `snap the head back` of his opponents, he also knew how to work off the jab, using it to set up hooks and right-hand bombs.

Muhammad Ali - The Greatest jab of them all, he had well over 80+ inch reach.. his jab was `Fast, hard & cutting`he could throw his jab going backwards or while dancing around the ring, if he used his jab while standing flat-footed it was an incredible weapon.. He used it to perfection to close both Listons eyes, he softened Foreman up with it, he beat Frazier to a pulp with it..

Norton, Bowe, Tunney, Louis, Foreman all had good jabs

During the early 80's Larry Holmes was quoted as saying that Pinklon Thomas was the only man whose jab really impressed him..
