Holmes, Whitaker, Quartey are my favorites. Hagler and Liston had those hard, snappy, smash your face in jabs.

Lots of others like Ali, Wlad, Hearns, Monzon, etc.

Nope, there's no problem with acknowledging that Vernon had an excellent jab. If anything I'm wishing that I had remembered to put him on the list in my previous post.

I dont know everyone that McGrain posted, I ll have to
check them out. I think Oscar De La Hoya had
a phenomenal jab, when he chose to use it.
Louis, Lewis, Wlad, Bowe, Hearns, Holmes.
Who do you think had the best jab at lightweight
and below?

Best I've seen at lightweight or below is Whitaker.

He's also one of the few guys I've seen who can pump out a hard, authoritative jab in the middle of stepping backwards.

Note that I don't mean throw a hard jab and step back, not step back and then throw a hard jab as your feet are under you, I mean throw a hard jab in mid motion.

Ike Quartery's was fantastic and got him almost everywhere he went.

Rocky Marciano. 49-0. Can't get much better than that.
