    DMT, check out this video highlight of Norton. Specifically the Bobick fight at the 1:07 mark. He throws 5 of them. The accuracy, speed and power is unbelievable.

    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.
