Which active boxer today has the best left hook in the sport?

Anthony Crolla
Former WBA belt-holder

It’s really hard to say. So, just because of the previous weekend, Nonito Donaire. He’s done it both to the head and body. There’s a good few names you could throw into the hat but I’m going to say Nonito Donaire. He’s still showing he can do it to head and body.

Matt Macklin
Former top contender

The best left hook in boxing, it’s probably hard to look past Canelo Álvarez. Nonito Donaire’s certainly in the conversation, without a doubt, but I’d probably go Canelo.

Tony Jeffries
Olympic medallist

It has to be Nonito Donaire, and a week ago against Reymart Gaballo again showed why. His hook is a weapon that has won him so many fights in his long career.

Declan Taylor
Sports reporter

For pure consistency and longevity it has to be Nonito Donaire. The power and accuracy he has with it, particularly on the counter, isn’t bettered by any active fighter. I still think about his knockout of Fernando Montiel.
