So is it scientifically proven you get more powerful when you become a man (not 18-21)
The term gets used all of the time in amateur boxing but I have never really heard it in the pros. It is usually a term used when you have 17 or 18 year old lad in their first or second season as a senior, who maybe won 5 or 6 national junior titles, if they lose to an experienced guy who is 5 or 6 years older people usually say he was "out manned" or if you are protecting a national junior champion in their first two seasons as a senior you might say I'm just entering him in the CYP's he hasn't got his "man strength" or his "man power" yet.
