10.) Paulie Malignaggi
A few years ago Malignaggi would be a lot higher on this list. He has slipped in speed in recent years but still remains a top competitor.
During his career Bradley has faced and beaten some pretty fast competition, for example, Devon Alexander, Manny Pacquiao. Bradley has kept up with or beat them in speed.
8.) Adrien Broner
Although at times he imitates Floyd Mayweather Jr, Adrien Broner has comparable speed to his “Big Brother” and in my eyes out powers him. Like it or not Broner will be on pound for pound lists and maybe even the next pay per view star.
7.) Yuriorkis Gamboa
Gamboa is 22-0 as a professional. This kid has speed and power in both hands. Don’t believe me? Watch the video.
6.) Manny Pacquiao
I know what you are thinking, why is Manny Pacquiao so low on this list? At some point Pac Man may have bee. In the top 3 but he has slowed down as of late. With that being said, he is still freakishly quick.
5.) Andre Ward
One of the names on everyone’s pound for pound list right now is Andre Ward. Speed is one of his best attributes, other than his defense. Watch the above video.
4.) Floyd Mayweather Jr.
To be the best counter puncher in boxing, speed is kind of a requirement. Love him or hate him Floyd Mayweather Jr still has some speedy hands, regardless of being 36 years old.
3.) Guillermo Rigondeaux
When you beat a man that calls himself “The Filipino Flash” and make him look as slow as a turtle, then you know you have some serious speed.
2.) Gary Russell Jr.
Although he hasn’t faced real top level competition yet, I can tell Gary Russell Jr has a bright future in boxing. It was hard for us to choose between Russell and Khan for the top spot. Khan has been just as fast but for longer.
1.) Amir Khan
Say what you want about Amir Khan’s chin but there is no denying his lightning fast hands. They say “there is power in speed” and there must be, because a fighter with a questionable chin and not a lot of power has raked up a 28-3 record. 19 of those wins are by KO.
