Default Re: 2 guys both same weight and speed, one is strong one isnt, do they hit with = pow

It doesn't matter who throws the box, a strong man or a child, the result will be the same (assuming the weight and speed are the same).

In punching proper technique allows you to leverage more of your body weight into the punch and to generate more velocity by using your hips and legs.

This video explains it a little better:

Thanks for your answer mate! Can you explain the following tho?

So how do you explain a guy like george forman hitting harder than mike Tyson, depite both men in their prime weighing the same and Tyson being MUCH faster with better technique and George being slow?

Can you explain why Earnie Shavers hit the hardest out of everyone despite not weighing much for a HW and despite not being that fast?

Can you explain why rocky marciano hit so hard for am man his size who was small and no especially fast.

Can you explain why Julian Jackson hit so much harder than Roy Jones Jr despite weighing less and being slower, ?
