Nobody has mentioned Jim Jeffries yet.

He knew how to throw a head punch, but used them very selectivley.

But the people who have seen most of his fights all unanimously agree that he's the best bodypuncher... I dont think that's a coincidence...

Just watch Zale Graziano 3 and watch how often hard and clean he hits to the body and this is him 4 years laid off in the army with a bum elbow...

Heck, Zale even throws some vicious digs at Cerdan's body in their bout.

Tony wanted to know how he lost without his big lips being busted, I wonder how Tony's midsection felt? he sure was wincing in pain every time Roy landed.

I also like this one about Zale

"When he hits you in the belly it's like someone stuck a red-hot poker in you and left it there."

Perhaps I'll have to finally devote some time to Zale.

Was anyone a better body puncher than Duran?

As good, perhaps, but I would contend even that.

His attack was varied, quick and riddled with feints so sometimes his body work can be hard to recognise unless you concentrate on it.

But in many fights he demonstrated well placed rib shots with hooks and uppercuts from both hands. He consistently smashed up Davey Moore's insides and crushed Guts Ishimatsu with a right hook downstairs.

I think he stopped Vilomar Fernandez with a body shot too. Not a one skit wonder either like see guys; both hands were effective.

Obviously i think Zale, he went to the body so often and hit clean. He throws i think sometimes 2/6ths 2/7ths body punches. Highest ratio of body shots i've seen a fighter throw. And including clean hits he has the highest one in that i think as well.
