Rosenbloom IMO was the ultimate excellent non punching champions.

In the modern era Jake the Snake and Zack Padilla won alphabet crap with very limited power.

If you just take the title of the thread with a pinch of salt then Sweet Pea would be the man imo, or Loughran or even Locche just behind him. But if we're taking it serious- no punching power, then the very closest or almost perfect candidate would be most definitely Rosenbloom by my reckoning.

how could anyone say pep? the man threw combinations like water flowing smoothly through a canal, he could pop. what made him so great was he had an offensive arsenal to go along with his incredible god gifted defensive manauevers.

I would say every good boxing champion has at least some kayo power in his best punch. But among the top heavy champs the lightest hitting of them all would probably be Gentleman Jim Corbett.

Chris Byrd was a titlist in the division where power is most needed.

So true. I remember watching him the first time, and as a native Pittsburgher rooting for him not so much to win the fight, as to show himself to be the real thing. Dissappointed at first to see how little swat he had, but then the longer I watched, realizing I was watching a masterful boxer.

That guy was as elusive as water. Too bad about him.
