Default The wide right to the body

Hi all. I want to make a little highlight video for studying purposes on the wide right to the body (or right hook to the body). It seems to be a lost punch and was wondering if you knew of any fighters that were great at doing it? Particularly from longe/mid range.

So far I have charley burley and Roy jones.

Thanks

Mayweather vs Gatti is a perfect example,

Won't go into detail as I'm on my phone, but most body punches are forgotten in Boxing.

Mike mccallum from close range, tyson from inside the pocket (mid range) duran, henry armstrong, ezzard charles.

Lewis and ezzard charles used to throw a short hook to the body then bolo the ringht, throw a long left hook with a right hand down the pipe, love than combo.

Its the best punch in boxing imo, straight left to the mid section (solar plexus) os another great punch, burley could left uppercut the body well that's another good punch from orthadox stance.

Rearhand hook to the liver is the best shot in boxing. (in terms of how effective it can bring some guy down if it hits flush)

Otherwise a normal orthodox left hook would do the job.

Mayweather likes to go to the body at close range, especially with the right hand.

Thanks. Yeah it's a great punch. It can nullify your opponents jab and once he's worried about it, you can feint it and come over the top. Love the start of this fight, skip to 2:10

Chisora was nailing Vitali with that shot all night.

Julian Jackson was absolutely great at this.

I have not recheck this, but was not Roy Jones KO punch against Hill a right to the side? I remember it was thrown pretty wide and more to the side than to the front.

SRR would effortlessly throw it.

Holyfield times a short right hook to the body, for all his heart Holyfields boxing skills are underrated.
