    Mike Tyson does not have awesome hands... He simply has power, but no accuracy. Watch his last few fights. He swings for a knockout on every shot, but even an early trained fighter can avoid those punches.

    No student of Tyson should watch his last few fights.

    Mike Tyson has no accuracy? That's why Spinks, who once was regarded as unbeatable and one of the bests, got knocked out in less than 2 min??? Tyson now, maybe... Tyson at his prime, hell no!

    Lots of great kickers, of all time, point fighting greats like Superfoot and Norris have to be mentioned, those guys made their careers out of kicks. Bas, McDonald, Mo Smith all have devastating kicks.

    My first thoughts would be Ernesto Hoost for low kicks (great punch + kick combos), CroCop for high kicks.

    Aerts has to be rearded as one of the best low kickers you'll ever see, Hoost is very good and I've never seen anyone else with the same ability to throw kicks into their combinations to such amazing effect.

    You really have to ask who has good kicks? Or do you wanna see what people might say?

    Sackmongkol (very hard kicks), Pud Pod Noy (nickname was Golden Foot or Golden Leg...I forget and a legend in MT ), Ernesto Hoost (sets up his kicks beautifully), Buakow - best kicks in K1 max

    These would have been my 2 picks. Sackmongkol is the best kicker I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of kickers. And Pud Pad Noy Warawoot is just a legend that you have to give props to.

    Seem to remember him kicking the hell out of Dekker, several heavy front kicks to the head that really rocked Dekker. Damn good fight.
