Rumor has it that what made Frazier's left hook so nasty was that his left arm was damaged in a farming accident when he was a kid. This resulted in his left elbow being unable to completely extend. Being a natural righty, he couldn't stretch that jab out with the left hand like Ali or Holmes would. So his coach taught him to be more of a switch stance fighter, and to put all hell into those left hooks since his arm was in the shape of a hook anyway.

2:54 is a perfect example.

Still shot of it, the guy's feet are off the fucking mat.



In the vid, if you pause it just right, the impact of that punch lines Ali's chin up with the ball of his goddamn shoulder. Don't tell me shit about JC Chavez or Roy or Tua. Smokin Joe Frazier is the left hook champ of da world and everything in it.

I wonder how much truth is behind that rumor. They just don't make em like they used to.

I think it's true or pretty close to it, you can see he never really extends his left arm and he had no left jab to speak of. I also know that he was the youngest of 10 and grew up dirt floor poor in rural South Carolina, so there's a good chance he did some ag work and didn't have proper medical care for that arm. Worked out kinda well in the end though. I guess when life gives you lemons....

Exactly, then you eat them and make "lemonade" in their Wheaties.
