Fastest overall body movement probably Jones Jr.

Fastest hand speed is Joe Calzaghe, easily.

Theres a couple of video's floating on the net of Calzaghe, speed training. One of them is in fact titled "Faster than Roy Jones" , and the other one if of Joe throwing something like 40 punches in 3 seconds. Guys at my wing chun class can do 25-30 in 3 seconds, but 40 is ridiculous.

Not to change the topic, but those WC punches have nothing behind them. I have seen those demonstrations and I think they are mildly bogus.
