Yes, which is exactly why you typically load up on body shots. (As I wrote, earlier.)

- but a head is not a heavy bag. It's basically a speed bag. All you need is momentum.

Now granted, if you have your opponent in trouble, and there's no chance of a counter, and you just want to put him away, then sure load up and aim for 6" behind his head. - but only in that one scenario.

I can tell you've never been in the ring. Learning how to NOT constantly put everything behind every punch is one of the hardest things for beginning fighters to learn, and it's one of the standard lessons virtually every trainer has to teach.
