Default The Greatest Heavyweight Southpaw is?????

Here is my top 5 list.

1: Ruslan Chagaev
2: Michael Moorer
3: Chris Byrd
4: Sultan Ibragimov
5: Corrie Sanders

Seem strange that heavyweight southpaws are such a rarity in boxing.


But who do you think is the greatest?

For me its definately Michael "Double M" Moorer. He finished with a KO record of 70%
He fought the following "known" fighters:
Vasily Jirov
David Tua
Frans Botha
Evander Holyfield
George Foreman
Alex Shulz
Bert Cooper
Alex Stewart

He was also a 2 division champion - WBO in the light heavyweight ranks and IBF & WBA champ in the heavyweight division

A close second would have to be Chris Byrd. Byrd was a guy that the fans did not like because he was kind of boring, but if you really appreciate the sport you would have appreciated his style. He wasnt a heavy handed fighter but he was pretty slick inside the ring.

no, tyson is left handed. thought that was common knowledge.

tyson is special bcuz he could really punch with both hands. usually when you have a converted fighter they carry all their power in their naturally stronger hand (DLH, cotto, frazier, dawson) or they dont have any power at all (winky wright). not mike though.

michael moorer himself is a converted fighter btw, naturally right handed. frazier was a natural lefty like mike.

I like ur avatar - zab191 For finishing 2nd in Season 3 of The Predictorship Challenge - D4thincarnation

Like I said in the other thread, Michael Moorer is the best Southpaw. Corrie Sanders was incredibly dangerous with the deceptive hand speed and effortless power punches.

I reckon Moorer could finish Sanders in a war.
