Default Signature Punch & Secret Punch

Hey guys,

I just want to begin my first post by saying hello to everyone!

I believe every great fighter has a signature punch,i.e. Ali's jab, Frazier's left hook, etc.. However, I do believe that many great champions had a punch which was often overlooked to be effective.

For starters, I will begin with MikeTyson
-Signature punch(es): left hook, right uppercut or whatever combination

-overlooked punch: jab- early on his career he had a pretty stiff jab that would surprise his opponents. For example: Before he threw his uppercut against Frazier's son (can't remember the name), he utilized his jab to back him into the ropes.

Do you guys have any examples of other fighters?

Tyson didn't really have a signature punch because he could knock a guy out with any kind of punch.

Tyson had a signature bite!

Liston had a brilliant jab with acid coated gloves.
