Ali’s was very decent.
For a master class, revisit the 1st round of Ali/Foreman, time and again Ali found the target, big George had planned on Ali dancing/running so those hard and accurate leads gave him pause for thought, he new then that the fight was not going to be as easy as the boxing world had told him. keep well.
Lead right's? Pep ,Robinson, Ali, Leonard, Jones Jr. Mayweather Jr. Hearns / lead left's ? Camacho Sr. , Whitaker, Nunn, all could land the punch
pretty much at will. Common denominator ? All were gifted with speed, a prerequisite to land right/left lead from orthodox or south paw stance.
Rodolfo Gonzalez. He used it a ton in his war with Chango Carmona.
Muhammad Ali, he used it quite a bit against southpaw Karl Mildenberger on Sept 10 1966.
Which fight was that? Kalule? He trew lead rights v Kalule because he was a southpaw.
I don`t remember Leonard throwing that many lead rights, his overhand right was very sloppy, he missed with that punch constantly v Benitez and Nunn wasn`t that accurate, he use to miss a lot of shots and struggled to land many lead lefts v Barkley and Starling, Nunn threw a lot of jabs.
go to 10:10 where Leonard drops Viruet with a straight right, there another fight Leonard had against a southpaw where he lands three straight right consecutively ill try to find it
Duran made Leonard feast on his right lead in Quebec.
Hagler ate it too
DeJesus dropped by it. Palomino ate it.
Sanchez won a World Championship by spoonfeeding "Little Red" his lead right.
As Chacon had done years earlier & then did to Boza in 1983
Herr Schmeling won the upset of the century using it in 1936
