Ive been told most pro boxers dont snap there punches, WHY?
 
A snappy punch is the optimal punch for knocking people out.

You would think ALL pro boxers would be throwing snappy punches rather than thudding punches.


What the hell is going on?

A good example of a snapping punch is the type of punch pacman throws, a thudding punch is the type of punch Frotch throws, both high level champion material. Whats going on? Thudding punches are totally inferior, how can such poor technique exist at such a high level?

thudding punches take less energy and some fighters may just not have to conditioning to keep that up over 12 rounds

It saves energy, plus not every shot is thrown with the intention of knocking a guy out.

WRONG!

Not only do snapping punches have more power and speed they require less energy as well!

Of course you can throw full power snappy punches with the intention of finishing them or light snappy punches for energy conservation/ point scoring. Either way its gonna save you more energy.

When you throw snapping punches it's more for fighters who have speed and in abundance.....The truth of the matter is it requires more energy to throw snapping punches than punching through your target.....as long as you hit your mark that is.

Sometimes speed equals power....sometimes it takes power away. PAC is a rare fighter who has a lot of speed and power which allows for his style of fighting....it helps his conditioning is on another level as well.

If a fighter like Cotto....wasn't accurate....Missing a lot of his shots would expend a LOT more energy and he would fade even more down the stretch of a fight.

A fighter like Paulie Malinaggi snaps his punches but it has a lot to do with his brittle hands and the fact that he's just not a puncher with power...so he's fast! But becuase he snaps...or pulls his punches it takes away from his power.

Boxers have certain styles to suit their attributes.....to highlight their natural qualities...if a fighter isn't a heavy handed fighter, but has a lot of speed and cat like reflexes....more than likely he'll be a fast, flashy fighter with snappy punches...if a fighter is slow but heavy handed...his style would see him putting more mus**** behind his shots not throwing "shoe shine" combinations.

aren't you the guy who's always in the training section trying to ask people constantly for advice because your a novice :think

maybe if you sat down and listened for once in while, you wouldn't have to keep asking so many questions

Some people have the cork-screw snap like Manny Pacquiao, who can sustain it for twelve rounds, twelve hard rounds.

Indicates great conditioning.

"Ive been told most pro boxers dont snap there punches, WHY?"

Because most pro boxers aren't very good, and will end their careers as mere stepping stones for the boxers that DO snap their punches.


Some other relevant points:

1: A few rare HW's got away with slower puches because they had so much muscle & weight behind them. A prime example is George Foreman.

2: Some great boxers throw SOME thudders to the head, but this is to confuse the opponent. If evey shot you throw is the same speed, no matter how fast, a great opponent can start to time & avoid them. By mixing them up, you catch him off-guard with the really fast ones. Prime example: WLad's left hand.

3: Some great boxers do throw more thudders than other boxers, simply because they go to the body more. Great body punches thud, because the body cannot bounce back like the head can. A body punch needs power and leverage to be effective, whereas a haed shot (against a slick opponent) needs speed / acclleration.

4: Thudding punches really DO use up more energy than fast snappers. This has been proven many times in scientific tests. It's not a theory.

5: Very rarely, I actually know what I'm talking about. This is one of those times. :cool:
