Default The best combination punchers of all time?

Let's compile a definitive list of the most effective combination punchers throughout history. Who was scarily accurate with their punch placement? Who had blindingly fast hands which allowed them to throw 4-5 punch combination's effortlessly? Who's combination's were less flashy, but more often than not resulted in a knockout? Consider punch placement, variety, power, and hand speed.

Wilfredo Gomez
Sugar Ray Robinson
Julio Cesar Chavez
Orlando Canizales
Ricardo Lopez
Juan Manuel Marquez
Alexis Arguello
Marco Antonio Barrera

Who's combination punching really impresses you? Produce some video footage, and outline at what point you're particularly impressed with. I'll start us off.

The man in my avatar could throw together some surprisingly sharp and unexpected combinations when he felt like it. JG - did you ever meet Jimmy Carter, or see him fight?

Not to sure about that. I listed him because he's certainly up there, but nothing I've seen on film would make him an overwhelming favorite...in fact, I consider Julio Cesar Chavez the greatest combination puncher to body and head of all time. Care to elaborate as to why you make a distant first?

Without handcuffs, JC was a helluva fighter -- very solid -- a coiled spring with a deadly left hook. Saw him near-decapitate Tommy Collins (who had more balls than brains) 9 times in a few rounds in Boston, and because he was a home-town kid, the ref was slow to call a halt, and almost got him killed.

It's a well intentioned question, A. Don't mean to be snide, but like J.C. Morgan said when some one asked how much his yacht cost: 'If you have to ask, you can't afford it'

Seen' em all (most live 'n in the gym) since the early '40s, never seen the like of Sugar's lethal, electrifying fusillades (not shoe shines).

I believe there to be a genuine dispute regarding who's the greatest combination puncher of all time, it isn't a one horse race. Nobody I listed was a shoe shiner, otherwise I'd have listed Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao.

Addie, I can tell you first hand, in the gym and at ringside, Pac's combos are NOT cream puffs. They look like arm punches but affect like Tasers.

He doesn't really throw combination's as much as he flurries to be honest, two entirely different things. I wouldn't rank him very high in terms of combination punching...power and speed is a different kettle of fish, though.
