Henry Armstrong was an all-round fighting machine, and a punching machine.

Love that Video..i like way alot of his combination's came from a hook...where as a lot of fighters use the jab to set up the combination's.

What i like about JMM is he's so precise about the way he throws them and he moves his feet to land the shots.

Looking back there's so many great fighters who used combinations and used them in different ways and went about them in different ways. I love watching fighters put shots toghther...i get bothered by fighters loading up on shots.

calzaghe had some great combos, although lacy was a sitting duck but the combos are impressive and one of the early rounds against roy jones jr he puts some lovely stuff together.

Tyson in his pomp threw phenomenal combinations. The end of the Pinklon Thomas fight being a good example.
