    Default Who are the best body-punchers in the sport today?

    After watching the Caballero fight this weekend and a video of Lucien Bute that Daxx posted in a different thread, it got me to thinking about who the best body-punchers are amongst active fighters.

    Off the top of my head, I would say Caballero, Bute, Cotto, and maybe Mosley are among the best, but I'm sure I'm missing some obvious ones.

    I think lamont Peterson deserves a shout. Hatton was always a vicious body puncher

    Obviously not the best right now, but if he carries on Antwone Smith definitely will be. He scored a KO with one of the best body punches I've ever seen on the Berto-Quintana undercard. The other guy didn't get up for 8 minutes.

    Right now, I'd say it's between Caballero, Cotto & Bute. Vitali Klitschko is actually surprisingly good to the body, he just tends not to utilize it. Glen Johnson does very well breaking opponents down to the body, I thought it was brilliantly utilized against Mack.

    JCC and McCallum use to be my favourite fighters with the body shots but Cotto would be my best and the shot he hit Jennings with was beautiful.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Hatton (if he's still in the mix)
    Nate Campbell
    Urango can change someones mind with a left hook to the ribs
    JML
    Clottey (I hate to put him in any "best of" category besides that iron chin)
    Cotto
    Jorge Arce (did he retire?)
    Mickey Roman (watch Antonio escalante fight last month!!)
    "Floyd needs to inject Xylocaine into his balls to gain the courage to fight Pacquiao."

    - and I quote from some random guy on the internet

    I'd pick Hatton

    Or Cotto (this is a very cool vid)

    Both left their opponents looking sickened to fuck when they got those bodyshots in.

    Micky Ward threw a beautiful body punch. He was better at it than Hatton for sure. Little tap on the side of the head, ear or shoulder and straight down under the rib cage. Awesome...

    There is a few very good in that department but I would that till now, overall, Cotto has a bit of advance on the others as he did throw a couple more significant ones (in my opinion) though other like Caba and Bute are quite respectable beasts in that respect too.

    I would say the guy I saw who got the best leverage to the body ever was Mike Tyson in his prime, but guys figured out how to stop him from ever getting the oppertunity relatively easily.

    I think Cotto has the most powerful body shots today, and he seems to have the best accuracy with them as well. He has the intuition that allows him to land at will to the liver.

    A guy not mentioned is Chad Dawson who IMO throws very well to the body, he just doesn't seem to have the power to hurt guys down there.

    Cotto is so damn slow these days though. No where near as effective getting those body shots in.

    Sorry when was Cotto so damn slow? When he was beating Pacquiao to the punch for 4-5 rounds?

    WHen I went to see him face PAcquiao, I was impressed by both of their speed. Cotto is much faster than most guys in boxing, and has exceptionally underrated handspeed which is much more apparent watching him live... Same can be said for Manny. It looks different on camera, at least with them.
