is there a correlation between height and reach that makes a fighter hit hard?
for example: edwin valero was 27 wins with 27 ko's. he was 5ft 6 tall, but had a reach of 69inches. for his height that's a long arm reach.
sergio martinez - 5'10 with a 75 inch reach. known as a big puncher.
marvin hagler - 62 wins with 52 k.o's and he was 5'9 and had a 75 inch reach.
thomas hearns - 62 wins with 48 ko's. he stood at 6'1 and had a very rangy 78 inch reach.
george foreman - 76 wins with 68 ko's. he was 6'3 with 82 inch reach
Lucas Matthysse - 32 wins 30 ko's and he's 5'6 with a 69 inch reach
marcos maidana - 32 wins with 29 ko's and is 5'7 with 69 inch reach
edison miranda is 5'10 with 77 inch reach
all the above hard punchers have long arm reach for their height. this seems to be common among the biggest punchers.
