    Like the sun over the East in the AM... A Waldo mention can't go ignored by his biggest fan.

    Chambers was bigger than Bill Brennan, Carpentier, Gibbons, Miske and Sharkey.... Nice try.

    Who were all around the same size as Dempsey. . Unlike the freakshow that was WK vs Chambers.. And had Chambers not been completely drained of all his lifeforce , WK would not have even produced that Knockout!!! Carl Froch could've slept Chambers in that last round given the condition he was in :meparto:

    Do you think it would take Tommy Morrison 12 rounds of trying before he landed his left hook on Chamers? I don't. . I give him 2 maybe 3 round to produce the show stopper !

    Hmm... I wonder how Chambers got so drained? Do we need to go back and review his ring walk costume?

    Chambers would school Morrison.

    A free shot to be fair. Sharkey was still moaning to the Ref.

    Frazier vs Quarry 2 can't remember the round but Frazier jabs then hooks and lands a brutal shot that Quarry somehow stayed up from.

    This gets my vote. Really, any conversation about the best ever left hook should include the word 'Frazier' somewhere imo. For me, Joe was the ultimate left hooker.

    Except. Even Joe never threw a hook that combined such speed, momentum and snap nor did he leave his opponent in the kind of twitching state that poor Ingo was in. To complete the story you have Floyd's reaction. Incredible that the man who had thrown the shot with such murderous intent just 30 seconds previously was so concerned with his opponent's welfare. This from a man who had just become the first to regain the heavyweight championship. As I say, this wasn't just a punch. It had a whole story behind it. Fitting that such a perfect punch should conclude it.

    In fact, the whole story is a short microcosm of Floyd; a sensitive, contradictory soul. A bit like Ezzard Charles, you wonder how great he could have been if he had been able to replicate his form from this fight and unleash the 'inner tiger' from within himself more consistently.

    The first one I thought of too. Brilliant in its delivery and result. I also think of 3 leaping left hooks delivered by Rocky Marciano on Joe Louis in the 8th round of their contest, Jack Sharkey on Primo Carnera in the 4th round of their first fight and of course the Frazier hook on Ali in the 15th round of their first fight. All three delivered with a leap with crashing results. Ironically, none of those three were a KO blow.
