There's a difference between punching a heavy bag and punching a man.
There's a difference between wind sprints and actual boxing.

I don't give a damn if a fighter dances the mambo to find rythym. Unless you want to be a face first brute who fights stiff with a short career and long-term head trauma, it helps to have it. And if you deny that the speed bag helps in that category, well, whatever.

You're concentrating on not only relaxing, but on hitting it properly and timing it. Nothing special about those things? Don't spar with me, sport.

If you punch in a fight the same way you hit the speed bag you need to start over.
...Do you know that you can punch it straight?
