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, ?
Tendon properties, level of CNS activation, muscle wisdom, technique, lack of co-activation, muscle pennation, fascicle length, point of tendon insertion, muscle stiffness etc. etc.

This is a stupid question that can't be answered (especially not with the level of understanding being displayed here) because there are too many factors and individual circumstances. But if you'd like to listen to idiots claim that it's all about a simple equation like body weight x velocity then go ahead.
