    Default Fights When a Boxer's Best Arsenal Was On Display!

    Think its been awhile since we've done a thread like this?


    Add any other punches not listed.

    Str8 Right- Floyd Mayweather vs Arturro Gatti- He kept cocking & re-cocking with pinpoint accuracy

    Str8 Left- Manny Pacquiao vs Erik Morales. 2nd fight was a thing of beauty. Morales had no answer

    Uppercut- Lennox Lewis vs Michael Grant -While he did a cheap shot, holding his neck down, it was still the uppercut that ended his night)

    Overhand- Ricardo Mayorga vs Trinidad- Don't think he can punch str8 if he tried! It was those overhands/haymakers that put him on his seat.

    Jab- Roy Jones vs Vinny Pazienza- I agree with commentator the jab was so fast, you can hear them!!! I know Larry Holmes is considered one of the best, but when it comes to providing an example? I go with Jones vs Paz as an example of a fighter's arsenal that looked untouchable.

    Body shots Roy Jones vs Virgil Hill- Bodyshots all looked nasty and to fracture one's rib IMO is the ultimate display of body shots

    Combinations Meldrick Taylor vs Buddy McGirt. He combo'd all night long. 4, 6 8 piece at a time!
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Inside Fighting- Juan Diaz over Acelino Freitas.

    Not the kind of fighter to extend his arms, fight from the outside using the jab. His game was a phonebooth fire fight fight. IMO His win over Freitas was the highlight of his career.


    2 inside fighters Diaz vs Katsidis. If Katsidis is forced outside he too is limited, but inside Juan proved to be far superior.

    James Toney fighting up close, avoiding punches, brutal body shots and landing that big right hand v Blade Barkley, Charles Williams, Jirov, Holyfield.

    Ali vs. Williams, Terell & Foley
    It's well recorded that Ali was on-fire the night he fought Williams, but at the point, just before his three year exile, he was faster than any heavyweight had a right to be, he had filled out physically, was hitting hard enough to 'one-punch' legit world-level fighters and could still dance the entire distance. This version of Ali was truly awesome.

    Shane Mosley vs Oscar De la Hoya
    Both guys were razor sharp at this time and were definitely close in terms of skill the first time around.
    Watching the fight back Mosley was just hungrier, willing to push through the pain barrier to win.
    I think Mosley is tragically underated at Lightweight, but this night might have been the most razor sharp he was.

    Ray Leonard vs Tommy Hearns
    Both guys.
    On the night they first met I think they could have given hell to any Welterweight from any era.
    I'm sure you get the implication, but I genuinely believe SRR would have had hell with either Tommy or SRL from that night.

    Salvador Sanchez vs Wilfredo Gomez
    Chava deserves massive credit for wins over LaPorte and Nelson, but against Gomez he just seemed invincible.
    Watching back the fight it seemed that no matter what he was going to find a solution, he was going to overwhelm Gomez no matter what; like a force of nature he just couldn't be denied.

    Agreed, Ali's last hoorah before exile, himself was a weapon indeed.


    I think DLH-Mosley is very under rated in terms of two young prime warriors undefeated displaying the entire arsenal. I remember Shane in between rounds said Oscar had a quicker left hook- his dad cut it down; "Son, don't think like that."

    He answered that with- I think it was a left hook. What made it special was that he threw it while leaping in midair and landed it before his feet hit the canvas. Merchant said something to the effect of that is the combination of foot and hand speed at its best. I saw what he saw and it was that needed arsenal to pull away in the final few rounds.

    Hearns' Jab was the weapon of the night. Ray had no tool in the box to answer. Fortunately he had some gas in the tank to go dog fight when Tommy's tank ran low. IMO Ray's speed was nullified, his boxing skills' stunted, never thought I'd see a banger outbox a slick show boat boxer. Again that jab was the key.

    No disagreements with Tony, I personally would refer to it as a fighter whose style of fight was on display, not so much a particular punch.
