    Poor Maskaev if he had George Chuvalo's chin he could have been a near ATG. I gotta give him credit for winning the WBC belt after all those ko losses though.

    How about his hook to the body? He really got to Ali, Holmes, and Young with that monster.

    Just watched the Turpin fight yesterday. Robinson threw that overhand like the guy insulted his mother. Just vicious intentions behind every shot. Once Robinson let his hands go and wanted you out of there, you were either getting kod or you were going to wake up with a severe headache in the morning. He was a machine gun.

    The fact he had such a great overhand but it isn't often discussed as one of his best punches is a testament to his greatness and well rounded ability.

    Poor Terry (RIP) got hit with TWO rights...the first one put him into a coma, the second put him into Bolivian. He didn't fall fast enough!
