Default Re: Marciano Harder Hitter than Lennox Lewis

A boxer may be 250 pounds, but certainly nothing beyond STATIC strength coming from moving that weight around says that he will punch HARDER than and explosive 200 pounder.
Yes but Lennox is more explosive than Marciano when he throws powerpunches.

And remember Super-HEavy weight lifters lift far more than 130lb weight lifters.

You can actually turn on slow twitch to be semi-fast twitch with training. And you can enlarge fast twitch fibre too.
