    Who is the boxer with the best right jab in history? My vote is for Marvelous Marvin Hagler who was a natural right hander but there could be others.

    Tony Willis. Didn't even look like a southpaw. Joy to watch.

    Sweet Pea could do surgery with his jab.

    I wouldn't say he possess a terrific jab but his right is like his whole toolbox. Perhaps, Guillermo Rigondeaux?

    Thread topic is right jab, not left jab.

    Besides Hagler and Pernell I think Winky Wright and Too Sharp had great southpaw jabs. Wright's jab was masterful against Trinidad.

    Michael Moorer, Michael Nunn, Sweet Pea, Joe Calzaghe, Henry Maske, Winky and Hagler are the standouts in my time of following boxing. Basically all the standout southpaws. The jab seems to be even more important to a southpaw.

    Indeed FastHands. I'd say Tony was ahead on points before the first knockdown though !

    Michael Second To Nunn and Marvin Hagler had really good right jabs.

    In the heavyweight division, it would be Sonny Liston. His “jab” was a power punch.

    Winky hands down. Thread over. He literally dominated hall of farmers with that punch alone. Well, the jab and an impenetrable defense.
