Punch output is how many punches you are letting off and workrate is your entire body of movement i.e. footmovement, head movement, clinching, punching etc

Workrate can neutralise punch output in numerous ways. Two examples are:
1) Mayweather v Chavez - Floyd decides to more or less stand close to Chavez thus he used his tools to make his work ineffective. Nothing really landed for Chavez while he landed at a very high clip.
2) Taylor v Ouma - Taylor was taming Ouma with his movement and heavy blows. Taylor was either moving or letting heavy shots go so Ouma couldn't get his shots off thus couldn't fire off his usual 100 a round.
