Re: Sweetest Straight-right In the history of boxing?
The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to go with Arguello. He delivered it in such a straight line that he actually sacrificed some explosive force in the process, but more than made up for it with his sharpshooting placement and accuracy. Even though he couldn't drop Pryor with it, the delivery, placement, and follow-through was as instructive as the proper execution of a correct and efficiently generated right cross can get.
Against Mancini, Alexis was so methodically graceful and fluid in his deployment of the right that it appeared hypnotically slow, yet it wasn't. He looked like a bombardier fixing his sights.
