    Sometimes you hear about how fast a fighter is/was and you remember. It's just a memory. Here's some footage to refresh your memory of some fast dudes. This made me appreciate Ray Leonard and Hector Camacho more than I already did....

    I think Leonard arguably had faster hands than Mel Taylor. Reason being? Ray actually committed to his combos with full body weight behind them, and was still wicked fast. Taylor had a tendency to sometimes arm punch.

    why does handspeed attract the sort of plaudits and praise that it does??? Jim Lampley referred to Khan vs Judah as a "Handspeed extravaganza" yet I can't imagine anyone waxing over a "thinking extravaganza" or an "improvisation extravaganza"

    Judah was very fast when he was in his prime...and Khan speed is limited by his stiffness.

    Bradley vs. Pacquiao will be a handspeed extravaganza...

    Ortiz vs. Khan would be an idiot extravaganza.

    Khan and Ortiz have the combined IQ of Antwun Echols.
