Louis and SRR. Why do these two old timers get mentioned a lot? Because they deserve it

The Robinson flurried and didn't combo punch thing is a myth. Oscar De La Hoya flurried, Jose Napoles combo'd. Robinson did both, and more combo than flurry to be honest. The flurries usually came to stop guys from clinching. Mosley flurries to try and open up guys' guards. He combo'd more when he was unbeaten.

Kid Gavilan's an interesting one, i'd like to see where people rate him here. It's like a flurry/combo cross. But with him it was the accuracy that set him apart, pinpoint at his best.

I would say there is even an art to flurrying, but you have to go to the likes of Ken Buchanan to see it done beautifully. He did it whilst moving.

So many but I'd go with Jones, RObinson, Tyson as my top 3. I suppose it depends if your looking for power/accuracy/speed

Robinson (delivered combinations with equal, devastating power in all punches and without pause). Joe Louis. Alexis Arguello (a hook off the jab then a right hand was a thing of beauty).

I think it is robinson without a doubt with louis probably 2nd.

However i will give julio cesar chavez a hell of a lot of credit here. Brilliant combination puncher, power, accuracy, decent speed and variation. He's up there with the best

From what I've seen of both, Chavez was more fluid.

SRR could generate more spectacular, and POWERFUL combinations, not those shoeshine type combos, than anyone. He was second to none, and in a very lethal way.

Robinson, Williams, Arguello and Louis are the stand outs for reasons already stated.

There isn't footage except the Oakland Billy Smith stuff, but by all accounts, Charley Burley was an absolute nail gun at his best according to Archie Moore, who was no slouch himself in the putting-punches-together department. Especially when he had a man hurt.

And I like Old Bones Joe Brown in this regard too; he put shots from the outside together really well.
