He could ko a polar bear with that left hook. Phone Post 3.0

Are you fucking crazy!? Do you know how big a polar bear is? Daley would not KO a polar bear with a steel baseball bat.

Jesus wouldn't ko a polar bear either. His standup was overrated. Phone Post 3.0
Been to a Daley seminar and after watching him shadow box with it I decided I'd rather be hit with a hammer. Phone Post 3.0

Not a huge fan of Rampage, but it's hard to deny how beautiful/picture perfect he throws it sometimes. Crisp, accurate, powerful and he doesn't leave himself open. I think on average Quinton still throws some of the most technically sound and powerful hooks in MMA.

Also Mark Hunt doesn't just throw them hard, but throws them smart as well. Definitely one of the best.

I lleft Rampage out of my mentions, because hes only ever KOd one opponent with a left hook and that was a chinney smaller Wanderlie who had been coming off several recent KO losses

Also, Rampage is over rated on a technical level. He just covers up and fires off the left hook for no regard at all times...its always the same tuck and roll left hook counter

Theres a reason why hes only been able to catch an older Wanderlie with it

I could be wrong, but I thought he caught chuck with at as well...and beltran. Either way it's been a while and neither is a testament to his power.

I also think that while he gets a little predictable at times he's good at the limited things he does well. The Rampage that showed up against Glover for instance looked pretty sharp, and his body mechanics are usually on point even if he isn't the most creative. I think he throws it extremely "well" he's just not always the most intelligent striker in the way someone like Hunt is for instance.

Page has been declining technically for a while, his peak in my opinion being the Henderson fight. That being said his mechanics are pretty sharp...I think the problem with page's boxing is A. Mentally and B. That he uses it to the neglect of the rest of his game.

Sugar Ray Robinson had one of the most vicious left hooks I've ever seen.

I haven't seen anyone mention Tyson yet either. Phone Post 3.0

Lawler counts for brutal lead right hooks from southpaw. Plus this gif demonstrating a hook to hook to hook to hook combo.
