    Exactly what i picked in my OP
    I agree i had it in my OP but mixed reggie johnsons name up with montell griffjn.
    2 piece combo over the southpaw jab in the time it takes most to throw 2 shots. Incredible handspeed and quickness of trigger pull....WITH power.

    Pity Chapo didn't feint and send one to the body a few times. Chavez was wide open for it and wouldn't have been braced for the impact, Not that it would have changed much. 87 vintage JCC was a juggernaut.

    Surprised he took that without panicking and going down or clinching himself to death

    The Tyson-Tillis knockdown was spot on.

    There are a ton of Mike Tyson combos that should be mentioned:
    - the counter Tyson lands on Reggie Gross after dodging 15 shots (not a combo but who cares).
    - the 6-punch combo Tyson lands on Jose Ribalta, resulting in Ribalta's mouthpiece flying into the stands.
    - the body/head "bolo" punch combo Tyson used throughout his career.
    - Buster Douglas landing a tremendous uppercut on Tyson after landing 5 set up jabs.

    Mickey Ward would throw the opposite - left jab to the head followed by a cringing left hook to the liver.

    Roy Jones landing that leaping left hook to Montell Griffin's chin (again, not a combo but RJJ was searching the entire round).

    Greg Page looked extremely fluid in his early 80's bouts.

    Yes. His power is vastly overrated if he couldn't even knock his own glass jaw ass out!

    Buster Douglas' straight left power punch was something special for an ortodox stance boxer. Skills and power

    Benitez's right cross that knocked Maurice Hope out was one of most smoothest and sweetest I ever saw. Amazing!

    There's no thread that's not a golden opportunity for Dino to engage in some Klitscko hate :rolleyes:

    Robinson landing two (three?) left hooks to the ribs followed by a left hook to the jaw that takes his man out. Fast enough to be a flurry but everyone punch is leveraged and powerful. His right that sends Graziano's mouth piece flying, and of course the left hook that put Fulmer to sleep.

    Also love Ali's left, left followed by a right cross that put Williams flat on his back, and the combo he finished George with. Starts in the corner and only seconds later has George against the ropes and finishes with a picture perfect left-right on the chin. This after eight rds of hard fighting in brutal humidity and heat.

    I was always partial to Louis's KO of Braddock, punching the shoulder out of the way before dropping the hammer.
