This video proves it. In slow mo, we can see Frazier has some kind of delayed reaction to the punch that makes him ''jump'' to the side.

Starting at 9:18.
Yeah you're right, but the fact that the punch made him jump like that emphasizes Foreman's power.

In the case of Foreman Frazier, no, Foreman never lifted Frazier off his feet from the force of his punch, if everyone is talking about that little delayed reaction jump hop that Frazier did towards the end of the fight. For years I thought they couldn't possibly be talking about that. But no, sure enough, that was exactly what they were talking about.

I swear, some boxing fans really don't have a brain in their heads. It's why ridiculous nonsense like this continues to be perpetuated.
What round did this happen in?

Imagine if Lewis hit Vitali with an uppercut that could lift 245 pounds off the ground.
Vitali his head would have just touched his back and he would have been dead in an instant
Yeah well Lewis had the uppercut of a circus clown so...

it's just a matter of weight transfer from a feet to another, losing balance

Yes he did. That uppercut that caused a delayed reaction and caused Frazier to jump.

Arguello lifted Kobayashi off his feet with body shots.

No, Joe Louis did not lift a 230lbs+ ball off his feet. The initial right dazed Galento and made him off balance and the force of the next shot knocked him off balance completely. That's why as soon as Galento hit the deck he got straight back up, not because he'd been hit so hard he was knocked to the canvas but because he was knocked down while off balance. Also he had an amazing chin.

I don't see the difference. If foreman doesn't throw the uppercut, Frazier's feet stay on the ground.

A guy for example uppercutting you so hard that it could lift you up 1 foot could probably kill you.

That's like putting a rope on your neck and falling a 1 foot distance with the rope stopping the fall.
That breaks your spine. (Normally a bigger drop is used to ensure death)
(The drops breaks the spinal column at the neck)

Thinking a man can lift a 230-240 pound man by hitting him on the chin is pure stupidity. (And I mean without delayed reaction/the brain and legs causing the jump)

The problem is people think the force from the punch directly causes the lift.

And not hard punch>brain goes woozy>legs go spaghetti>time to jump

Difference between direct-indirect
