    Was the Fraziers hook that dropped Ali in the "Thrilla" the best ever thrown by a fighter for timing, power, accuracy and right positioning of the legs before the landing?

    Have you ever seen other hooks better than it?

    I prefer the Fraziers hook because it is thrown in extension. Robinson's hook is practically landed standing still.

    The hook by Morrison that turned Razor Ruddock inside out was a beauty.

    Mickey Walker threw some of the meanest hooks I've ever seen.

    Benn’s famous hook in R10 of Eubank II was picturesque. How Eubank took that punch we’ll never, ever know.

    Olivares' knockdown of Torres is the most picturesque hook I've seen on film. Timestamped.
