I remember that fight. Imagine what an inspired Eddie Mustafa could have accomplished.

I haven't seen a lot of prime footage of Zale (how much is there?). Never really captured my imagination.

Not sure of who would make the cut, but guys I'd consider before those three:

Saldivar
Olivares
Yuh
Chang
Rodriguez

Some purportedly good body punchers without enough footage to accurately say:

Jack
Angott
Kid Berg


I think he does live up to it. His commitment to body punching, how he placed his shots to the body puts him up there with the great bodypunchers.

I'm obsessed with heavyweights so as far as heavyweights goes:-

Smokin Joe Frazier
Iron Mike Tyson
Jack Dempsey
Rocky Marciano

Other weights

Julio Cesar Chavez
Ricky Hatton
Jake Lamotta
Henry Armstrong
Bob Fitzsimmons
Mickey Walker

Agreed. It's his ferocity to the body that gets overplayed (mainly by those who are mainly going by reputation rather than footage), but he was one of the most economical and consistent body punchers I've ever seen.
