    Floyd made it look easier to land than the jab.

    Floyd came immediately to mind with his counter. Tommy is a good choice as he also had crushing power.

    Good choice. I was also always partial to Foster's jab.

    That guy was leading like a wrestler. Quality of opposition counts.

    I think there are a ton, and I’m not versed enough to really comment, except to say that I thought Antonio Tarver was a very mediocre boxer except for his long, straight left. Getting his head out wide and taking a full step -that thing came from miles away, quickly, and had power and accuracy. Then there was a tie up... wouldn’t have worked well in anything but boxing where you get separated safely if you miss.

    It's pretty but it's not powerful.

    Most good southpaws because they rely on their straight left like Lara, Pac, and Rigo


    but in terms of today, its 100% Dmitry Bivol

    actually agree. Bivol's straights are sniper like. I don't think they're the best in the game today, but they're dangerous stuff.

    I think Brook has some really good left straights too, even if he doesn't have a whole ton of power behind them.

    OP didn't specify power though. That was Floyds signature punch IMO.
