For all of his limitations, Chavez Jr is a fantastic body puncher. You'll rarely see him throw a combination without including a rip downstairs.

I think he caught Froch with one decent body shot. The problem for Bute was, Froch took it and smiled back at him.


...and then knocked him out.

Andre Ward > Lucian Bute in terms of body punching, I think Froch would agree.

That body punch RJJ gave to Virgil Hill was bad and Margaritos body shot to Citron was real nice

Indeed.

same goes for the use of the uppercut for fighters who don't normally fight on the inside

Boxer's and trainers just feel its too risky to use either punch as leaves you normally open to big counters...

This is why I rate Marquez highly as he does these things beautyfully.

Rigondeaux, Bute and Cotto come to mind, although Cotto isn't as dedicated to his body attack as he was in his 140lb days (although he improved as a fighter on moving to 147).

Rigo has the best single shot; his left-hook to the body is evil. Bute has shown some nice variety in his work downstairs.

But nowhere good as his old man.

Was kinda impressed with David Price.

A 6'8", or whatever, Heavyweight that can dig.

Today it's Canelo, Chavez Jr, and he doesn't fight anymore but Vassiliy Jirov was a beast, he'd just destroy you to the body.

Right now? Guillermo Rigo! EASILY

Back then, 140lb Cotto and Ricky Hatton.

Before that Jose Luis Castillo

Cotto definitely should be mention. Alvarez is becoming a good body puncher as well.
