    Joe Gans deserves a mention...

    I’m surprised Duran wasn’t the first guy mentioned

    Leonard did use it. In many fights. Nunn also used the lead left in many.
    Perhaps you haven't seen the majority of their fights?

    Little Red Lopez is the greatest hero I have ever had.
    At the point that he fought Sanchez they had been selecting his opponents carefully, the Ayala fight being one that got tough.
    I was 14, 15 at the time and I am pretty sure that I could have hit my idol with lead rights up to the instant that he killed me.
    Little Red Lopez ate right hands like popcorn. Landing them in no way indicates anything great about Sanchez.

    He`s not turning his around to get full power into the shot, his technique is poor.

    I saw Leonard v Benitez, Hagler, the two fights v Duran, the two fights v Hearns, the Lalonde and Norris fights and the Kalule fight, he used the lead right most in Kalule fight out of those fights, he used to miss a lot of his lead overhand rights. I saw Nunn v Starling, Curry, Tate, Cordoba x2, Little, Toney and Barkley, he really had trouble landing the lead left on Starling.

    Did he , will revisit this fight soon, also brings back memories seeing those names, well remember the dreadful beating Carmona put on Ramos, he made Mando pay for living the high life and not going to the gym. keep well.

    Mark. of course he's not getting full power on the shot, Most punches are NOT full power in
    a boxing ring. Gans had over a 110 or 130 pro fights (off memory,I could be wrong) I'm
    sure he's doing it for a specific purpose.

    Have to give Buster Douglas his due as his lead right disrupted that Tyson timing and was a main factor in winning that fight

    Mike, did you actually see Ramos-Carmona? Man, I'd love it if that bout ever resurfaced.

    It's actually 'stupidest'. With an E.

    You should only really use 'stupidest' with an I when you say something like 'I said Harry Greb started 10 out of 12 combinations with a lead right when no footage of him actually fighting exists let alone enough to make such an evaluation. Stupidest post on this thread.'
