Anyone who thinks Mosley was quicker at lightweight than welterweight is either mentally handicapped, a moon child or just ****ed up.

Why do they not agree? Probably because he was previously a lightweight and thats lighter than welterweight, hence they think he can't be quicker after a two weight jump. Well, that plays mind games with people. Similar to an optical illusion, if you know what I mean. Let your eyes do the talking.

Too hard to give an exact list or even say who is no1 but I think Whitaker might be last here.

Awesome post.
Leonard/Judah
Mosley
Mayweather
Hearns
Sweet Pea.
Judah clearly faster than Mayweather. Phenomenal
speed. Leonard obviously just as fast not
To mention the bolo punch which makes his
combos that much sweeter. I was floored
by Mosley's speed in De La Hoya/Mosley
1, especially the last 5 or 6 rounds. Very
close though.

Leonard
Judah/Hearns, (Judah faster in single punches, hearns better in combinations)
Mosley
Mayweather
Whitaker

Possibly the only time Whitaker would come out last on a question about handspeed.

Kenny Gould had Superb Handspeed, Sadly not much Mustard on his shots though.

Hearns singles and doubles were as quick as any.

Mayweather, Pea and Judah at the bottom, though Judah has great speed for about 4 rounds.
