Default Re: Weight transfer on thr right cross how much weight should be on the rear foot ?

I like to think of the rear foot as a catapult, and the weight your leaning in is the size of the boulder you put in it. If you constantly leaning over to extend your right and lunge, you're subtracting from the weight that gets thrusted forward into the punch when you pivot. If you sit back, like, say, James Toney, and pivot while punching through the target, you get a lot of leverage and authority behind it. Even if you're more upright or advancing on the front foot, a majority of your weight being on your back foot is generally a good idea and provides good balance, along with the follow through on rear-hand punches. That's my understanding of it, anyway.
