Frazier is my favorite however check out this left hook Tony Zale lands on Rocky Graziano in their 3rd fight.

I'd go with Walcott vs. Charles. A knockout based on pure perfect technique.

I couldn't help it!!

Ruddock is one of my all time faves...

3 wicked hooks ftw...
That was no hook. Technically that would be called a "smash".

One of the most savage knockouts I've ever seen.

After checking some footage, I gotta admit Tommy Morrison had a decent left hook.

Although Morrison was just an average boxer, it is still pretty impressive how he blows Ruddock...

Some thread today mentioned Lee Ramage and that reminded me that Louis-Ramage II features one of the best left hooks by Joe that I can remember. And yeah, Foster-Quarry was a beauty. No words for SRR-FullmerII. I also remember one thrown as a counter by Sam Langford against Joe Jeanette that was a beauty. Zale-Cerdan featured a nice triple one (actually there were lots of them in that fight). Ohh. Steele-Lesnevich. Actually was not exactly a left hook, was almost like a southpaw straight left he shot while turning. The setting was almost as nice as the punch itself. And yeah Walcott-Charles was awesome. Had to be on Charles, though? Tsc. Marshall-Mills was interesting. For a second Mills seemed to forget he was in a fight (it was a leaping left hook too, by the way, to whoever asked).

Personally. I think Frazier-Foster had the most awesome body-head left hook combo of all time:

Sugar Ray Robinson.

His hook was so quick and explosive. He could glide back and stop on a dime and put a fighter down with it. Robinson could also double and triple his hook. Hell he even threw 4 and 5 hooks at a time.

It was simply the greatest weapon any fighter has ever entered the ring with. Now the fact that he also had a killer right is the first clue on why he was the greatest to ever lace them up.
