    So I was just watching some old Frazier fights the other day, and this thread came to mind. Which fighters throughout history have been primarily one handed? Frazier certainly gets huge mention , his left hook wasn't just his best punch, it was almost his only punch lol.

    He's still regarded as being one of the greatest HW's of all time, so who else deserves mention along with Smokin' Joe?

    Chuvalo for the same punch. Rocky Juarez. Hearns for his right-hand because it was so emphasized people forgot about his triple-jabs with his left.

    Tommy Morrison with his left hook. Pacman (Before Roach) and his straight left hand. David Tua with the left hook as well.

    Every fighter I think of seems like a good choice at first, then I can't think of that many examples of a particular punch.

    Lennox Lewis' straights? Meh...

    Kevin Johnson, he throws his right hand maybe once a fight. What a shame.
