    Who are some notable jabbers in kickboxing/muay thai? Who has the fastest, cleanest, best overall jab?

    Petrosyan has a good jab, Holzken has a decent jab, Sittichai has a good jab, Spong has a decent jab especially for a HW and I know even elss about MT than i do about kickboxing but I seem to remember that Jomthong Chuwattana even in his MT fights showed a nice jab

    Semmy Schilt, but only because of how much damage he did with it. He regularly knocked people down with his left jab and even KTFO of a few.

    +1 Semmy by a mile.
    Pretty much his goto strike. Just like Wlad's t wasn't fast or pretty, but it was on the money and with power..

    Semmy's jab is coming from his power hand and he has a MASSIVE reach advantage.

    For me Jomthong has the cleanest jab.

    I don't think I've ever seen Semmy through a jab, they're all "hooks" or like, ridgehands or something. It's a weird style.
