Regardless of what childish comebacks you have, Floyd was far from a runner at 130. He had faster reflexes and better movement than Zab, bottom line, with hands about on the same level. He was overall faster.

Anyone who thinks Calzaghe is the fastest fighter ever needs to get slapped.

I voted for Meldrick, but this is precisely why I asked KG if he had any footage of Camacho. Its been a long time since I have seen any, although I remember him having blazing hand speed. Oh well, I cant vote for the guy if I cant see him again.

I agree about Roy having the best combo of hand, foot, and reflex speed... along with that little something extra that just had you not believing that a man of his size could move like that.

as far as fastest hands my vote would go to meldrick taylor, he had the fastest flurries i had ever seen p4p and i have seen much of the modern hand speed masters.

i think the fastest foot speed may be roy jones or floyd mayweather. from what i have heard, willie pep was extremly fast but i have never really seen enough footage of him.

I voted for Jones Jr. too because he came to mind first. I never measured of course but he's the fastest overall with handspeed, reflexes not to mention punches coming from out of nowhere so fast that the opponent has no time to react. That's what boxing is all about IMO.

Thanks for looking.

I have always found it a bit strange that there just isnt any footage of him online. A poster here said he was going to put some online a few months back (sweetscientist?), but I havent seen it.

Me either and that's a problem

Somebody post some footage if you have it, he has a great following yet I've only seen bits & pieces of his work.

zab has to be on the list no matter what. His overall speed and hand speed is sick. I mean the fact that this mother****er can throw lead uppercuts with either hand as fast as a jab is crazy. That requires speed of foot, body and hands just to get in position. Camacho, ROY most def. Taylor had fast hands Sugar Ray was lightning.
