But often, knockouts are about timing and speed. Very, very often. And that kind of impact comes from technique, experience, and fast-twitch muscle explosiveness.

Power is less of a factor in a knockout than most fans think.
Arguello must be a supreme example of this. In terms of pure power his punches doesn't look that devastating to me, but the timing and accuracy of them is just something else.
