Interesting what Steward says. The transfer of power would be greater through a rigid medium. Speaking of rigid mediums, Bearcat Wright could both parry and avoid the right uppercut as if second nature.
I don't know about muscle mass as much as muscles in general. A guy who does not have much muscle is not going to generate much power. And that is essential to land a decent punch especially body punches.
