even before boxing when i have fought people on the street(messing around or serious), i've always been the smaller lighter fighter 11stone 5'7,quite stocky though.
(145 pounds that is) and held my own, against 13,14,15,16stone(honestly) guys who have commented on my hard punches.

could i just be a born puncher?and how do i utilise it to my advantage even more?

thanks for reading.
Honestly, you musn't hit that hard.... if you did they wouldn't be remembering they got hit, they'd be asking what happened after they woke up. In boxing there are plenty of people that punch hard.

Yes, you may hit hard. It doesn't mean all that much though. I'm 140lbs and have dropped boxers way heavier in the gym, it's a different story when you're competing and boxing more experienced guys who you don't know, and who you have to work out first and use skill.

Iv had the same sort of comments , as im sure many have on this forum. However i think pads and bags are deceiving and sparring you shouldnt be trying to knock out your partners so until you fight and all of a sudden your knocking guys out then i wouldnt worry about it too much. And also i think trainers sometimes say it to give you confidence (not a bad thing) Id rather a trainer tell me im fast, technically good ect.

There was a couple guys last night who had "power". We were doing partner drills and they were loading up, the deceiving thing about there power is i could have tagged them probably twice maybe 3 times before that swinging arm got me or not have been there at all.

If you have power in both hands great put it to the back of your mind and work on your technique and not relying on power

If you have no power in your punches , put it to the back of your mind and work on your technique and not relying on your lack of power

I used to just swing, which doesn't work and loses you fights. Now it's all just about doing the best to outbox the opponent while hitting them fairly hard.

Knocking people cold is more about placement and timing than raw power.
Could be his body shots theyre remembering.
My main sparring partner was regarded as one of the hardest punchers in the region, and his punches didnt hurt so much at the time, but after sparring him, you always had your lumps and bumps. He is definitely the hardest puncher Ive been hit regularly enough by to judge, but never once knocked cold.

Your right in saying there are plenty of people who punch hard, boxings about seeing or creating the openings to deliver the shots and minimising the other fighters oppportunitys to do likewise.

Put it to the back of your mind and work on improving all the other aspects of your boxing.

That may be true, but I'm also right.

I'm really, really fast. I've sparred people and fought people on the street, men littler, much littler than me who you would expect to be like greased lightning. And they all say, to a man, I'm like shit off a shovel when I get going. Like a 13 stone, white, Christian Bruce Lee, Naseem Hamed and Yoda all rolled into one.

How do you think I could best use this to my advantage during a fight?
