Especially considering he is punching at guys smaller than him. I was thinking of mentioning Holmes, but he had much bigger targets to hit throughout his career

Mine too. Of course I imagine that there are a number of men to choose from, but Louis is as good a choice as any.

I think there could be a thread on fleetest of foot and fastest of hand heavies and Marciano would still get mentions.

Good shout on Moorer - first one that came to mind - loved the way he boxed he absolutely was one of the most accurate - absolutely pinpoint and beautiful to watch when in shape and on his game - and funnily enough for me he was basically a southpaw Joe Louis without so much power - but his jab hand was beautiful and he was so precise.

My shout is one who hasn't been mentioned yet though is the great Gene Tunney

Louis, Ali, Tyson in that order. Tyson gets bumped down because he sometimes threw from long range and missed but in his prime when he was on point he was incredibly accurate.

Emanuel Steward
