    Arguello's text book body combo on Andy Ganigan.
    Beautiful and brutal at the same time. Poor Ganigan
    was left on the canvas withering like a hot spear
    was stabbed thru his abdomen.

    Briscoe v Valdez 2
    His legendary body punching took the eye of Liston " the last of the great body punchers " said while BB was still in the amateurs.
    stay safe guys.

    Both Cotto and Ward have been thrown out here, but I think Hatton was a better body puncher than both. He was certainly more creative than either man and I think more accurate, as well. His stoppage over Peacock was one of the most awesome body-focused attacks I've ever seen:

    I remember watching Able Ramos systematically destroy Omar Figueroa's body to the point of Omar throwing up blood in the corner before his corner quit. Brutal.
    Another one off the top of my head was Gatti ending Dorin's boxing career with a single body shot.
    Ill probally remember more after I post but oh well.

    Hopkins vs DLH, though Oscar was considerably smaller.

    RJJ vs. Virgil Hill

    Frazier v Ali I

    Dempsey vs Sharkey - and no, they weren't low blows.

    Cotto, JCC, Mickey Walker in just about all of their fights.

    I miss guys like Cotto. Fought everybody unlike the sissy's occupying the current welter division. Watch him pour the water into the basement

    Tszyu vs Hurtado - wild opening round, both men down (Tszyu twice, Hurtado once) but later, Kostya dedicated himself to a disciplined and brutal body attack - which ultimately brought Hurtado undone by round 5.

    Terry Norris KO'd Vincent Pettway with a great body shot. Mickey Ward had some good ones as well...the one against Alphonso Sanchez was excellent..

    Mickey could leave guys in complete agony.

    How Arturo Gatti got up and continued I’ll never know.
