Default Re: Punching power is "all attitude" - your thoughts?

Ive been thinking about it more. And in a way i think what you say makes sense, in a way it does take attitude an a pretty wreckless mindframe, a lot of people pull their punches an dont follow through because its not natural to punch hard an put your hands and arms in that postion. if what i said even makes sense its hard to explain what i mean. but i see what your saying n agree in a way

That's just not true. Look at my Harold Johnson example earlier- Johnson was made out of steel and concrete and was quick to boot. When he.wanted to Jr could crack, as in the Andrews fight. The guy hurt Doug Jones more than Foster did and Foster landed solid. But stylistically, consciously, Johnson wasn't a puncher. He choose not to be one.
