The Top Ten

Manny Pacquiao
This guy is so fast. He has power both in his left and right hand that made him an eight division world champion.
Mannys incredibly fast people don't realize he throws 7-8 punch combos all fight he has incredible endurance... He can get off a couple 8 punch combos in like 5 secs
This guy moved from bantamweight to welterweight conquering each division. Even though he moved weights he still maintained his speed. The guy throws punches from weird angles. With power in both hands he demolished legends LIKE Oscar De LaHoya, Marco Antonio Barrera, Shane Mosley and many others.
Pacquiao is undoubtedly one of the best fighters of all time.
[Newest]This guy is the definition of a true champion. He's been in many wars with a lot of greats and he took them down with his raw hand speed and his hard power punches. Definitely one of the best!

2Muhammad Ali
Muhammad ali is known to be the fastest boxer of all time as he is absoluter right with his quotes. He is defiantly the greatest and t. Nicknamed "The Greatest, " Ali was involved in several historic boxing matches. Notable among these were three with rival Joe Frazier, which rank among the greatest in boxing history, and one with George Foreman, where he finally regained his stripped titles seven years later. Ali was well known for his unorthodox fighting style, which he described as "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee", he fastest every one know that
why alis clips, his combinations punches his dependence on his reflexes to avoid punches while holding his hands low and his beutifull footwork, wacth him move and you forget about the featherwieghts like manny
'The Greatest' stuck out in his days as the heavyweight king as he was so quick, but still so strong. The famous quote, 'I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark. '

[Newest]After watching is fights, in my opinion he is the fastest. His footwork is amazing, I love the"Ali shuffle"

3Roy Jones Jr
Roy is clearly the fastest boxer of all time, there is no boxer with the raw pace of jones, he is the only boxer I've seen who can outpunch opponents with his hands by his side, plus not many other boxers can KO an opponent by throwing a punch which started with both hands behind his back.
My personal favourite boxer of all time. Roy Jones dazzled the fans with his unnatural, showboating style. The punch where he knocked his opponent out after having his hands behind his back was hard to believe. He was known for throwing six or seven left hooks in succession, mind blowing.

He was able to land punches get inside and back out with out hands to block without getting hit no other has done that manny gets hit Ali got hit but not Jones in his prime
[Newest]It is said that this guy could throw 4 uppercuts in 1 second. Now I know the technique to do it but in 1 sec that's inhuman. So this man is not human speed wise

4Sugar Ray Leonard
Sugar is famous for his wars in the golden era against Duran, Hagler and Hearns. You don't get the nickname Sugar without being special.

Sugar ray Leonard has the fastest hand speed ever. Ali had great hand speed for a heavy but not on Leonard's level
The fact that he is so low is insane. Watch the marvin hagler fight and the duran fight and you will see his speed is unmatched

5Mike Tyson
Although there are many fast punchers out there, few, and I mean very few, can match Mike Tyson's level of speed. Yes, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr. , Manny, and Ali are worthy mentions; but nobody can top Mike's speed in single punches, combinations, AND accuracy. I see these other greats, but in my honest opinion, their single punches, let alone combinations, look like sloppy quick throws. Mike Tysons, are like a bullet shooting out of his body. They are violent.
Tyson was a man with raw speed and power. He ripped his opponents open with fast, precise punches.

Tyson is sick when he was 18-20 his hands were untouchable
[Newest]Tyson was so fast he was an stoppable when he was young no one can match tyson

6Floyd Mayweather Jr
Fastest Runner of all Time!
Floyd can throw Jabs from any starting position, whether up high or down low and hit his opponent literally anywhere with crazy accuracy.
Floyd Mayweather Jr is by far the fastest boxer of all time...

7Prince Naseem Hamed
Naseem Hamed was a fantastic boxer with tremendous enthusiasm and confidence. At his prime he was probably one of the best pound for pound and lost against Barrera due to the weight he had lost to make the weight limit. He had no power on that night but this defeat should not look over his accomplishments. He was truly a gifted fighter and an entertainer.
Prince was flashy, talked a lot of trash and generally had no respect for his opponents until he got his beatdown from Barrera. But that doesn't take away from the fact he was a naturally gifted fighter. Speed and very powerful punches for a lower weight fighter, Naseem was another special fighter.

Prince Naseem Hamed was a fantastic boxer who didn't achieve his potential. His flexibility was probably the best I've seen in the sport of boxing as he kept his hands down and used his fantastic movement. He had good amount if speed as he landed shots whiteout know one see ing the shots. TREMENDOUS FIGHTER

8Floyd Patterson
Was once the youngest heavyweight champion in the world before a certain 'Iron Mike' came along. Very fast hands for a heavyweight.

Often argued Greatest of all time

9Meldrick Taylor
If you've never seen Meldrick Taylor before, please go onto YouTube and watch some of his fights. His handspeed is unbelievable, a serious contender for #1 spot.
Meldrick taylor by far had the quickest hands at the time even by today's standard. Although he lacked power he made up for it with speed and accuracy.

10Joe Calzaghe
If you need one reason to justify the claim that he is one of the fastest ever, it should be that Roy Jones wouldn't fight him - someone who could finally Roy for speed, loved to mix it up (remember, when he got tagged he started to have a tear up! ) and who had a chin of iron. One of the most underrated fighters of all time.
Undefeated world champion Joe Calzaghe mixed incredible speed with brilliant stamina as he could easily throw over a 1000 punches in a fight, this was usually down to his brittle hands meaning he couldn't thrown many power punches.

The Contenders

11Amir Khan
A great fighter who has a tendency to forget his defense and rush in with a hot head, if he sorts out the problem with the help of Virgil Hunter then with his blistering hand speed he will trouble mayweather I would go as far as stopping him
Come on, as much as you guys hate him or think he's awful, you can only admire his hand speed. Yeah he might have a glass chin, and I'm no Khan fan, but he has the fastest hands I have ever seen.
Freddie Roach said Khan had faster hands than Pacquiao, and he trained them both. The only reason Khan is at #8 is that he doesn't have the same fan base.
[Newest]He is really fast

12Sugar Ray Robinson
What the hell? This guy is the best pound for pound boxer ever. He is officially the fastest boxer to have ever lived. What the hell is he doing last on this list. It's obviously little hypebeast boys who vote for anything that's "in".
My idol. One day I hope to be as good as Robinson
Fastest fighter ever.. Had every skill needed

13Rocky Marciano
Died an undefeated champ.

14Pernell Whitaker
Great defense & speed

15Hector Camacho

16Nonito Donaire
He has incredible hand speed.

17Oscar De La Hoya
How could you forget him? Maybe not the fastest but definitely top ten, and had a rediculous left hook that floored people

18Miguel Cotto
The first boxer that I saw to destroy pacquiao's face he should be on the top ten!

19Saúl Álvarez
Did all of you forget about one of the greatest Camelot Alvarez is the best he should be in top three the only reason Floyd money mayweather won becuase he was runnig away from him he doesn't even dough them he just run away I think he is the best

20Juan Manuel Marquez
The only one who kicks pacquiao, also a great counter. enough said
