    amazing. Thanks. Norton is quite underrated.

    Great video. Norton's right hand is a good one to emulate, particularly for relatively shorter heavyweights.

    Except that Golota got right back up which is why I'll never be convinced this was as hard as it's made out to be by some.

    I feel like some people are including strait rt hands mixed into this thread.
    As far as a true Overhand its Withspoon vs Anders Eklund. That was an overhand right in the truest sense of the word.

    Thank you, Robert. An overHAND right is the term.

    An overHEAD right misses. Clue's in the name.

    Not really, mate. I couldn't miss, though I appreciate the kind word. Can't believe it took two pages for someone to state the obvious.

    Really now, have all you guys forgotten or have you never seen Marciano's right-hand kayo of Walcott in the 13th round of their first fight? The evidence of the punch's incomparable power is Walcott's instantantaneous transformation from a superb fighting machine to a heap of bone and flesh lying inert on the canvas. It took ten cops and a boy to revive him. Old Joe looked like he was dead.

    I suppose you can quibble that it wasn't an overhead right. I've never heard the term before. to me, it sounds like the same thing as a straight right or a right cross.
