Default Re: is there a correlation between height and reach that makes a fighter hit hard?

The longer your arms, the more powerful your straight punches are (jab and backhand). It's a fundamental principle of torque. E.g. Wladimir Klitschko

However, short armed fighters throw better hooks e.g. Tyson
