Left Hooks: Who Was The Best At It?
Part Four: Final Post.
2. When opinions on who had the best Left Hook in Boxing names from the forties and fifties come to mind, Men such as: Benny Lynch, Tony Zale, Ray Robinson, Ezzard Charles, Willie Pep, Kid Gavalan, and Rocky Marciano.
3. Benny Lynch had a great left hook but it was wide and wild and he would get so aggressive you could see him turning Southpaw with it. He would move and circle while throwing it angling his opponent.
2. I’m always amazed when I read or hear Boxing People talk about the greatest Left Hooker in Boxing and never hear the names of Baby Arizmendi, Freddie Steele, Joe Louis, Joe Walcott, and Tony Zale from the 1930’s.
3. What these Men had were great left hooks that can be seen on film. I’m going to focus on a certain type of left hook that doesn’t get as much attention as it should.
