Personally i think body mechanics is more significant for power development than hand size

The other argument though is that if you have little hands, all your power is concentrated on a smaller area, which makes a shot more forceful. Swings and roundabouts I think.

I've sparred with a short stocky cruiser whose power 'felt' different, like a slow shoving force that drove through you. Nowhere near as unpleasant as being hit by a light welter who is 6ft of legs and spaghetti arms, but when he hits you it feels like he's using a golf club.
Im not sure Im following that, if ALL your power is concentrated on one area, wouldnt the largest area with more power do more damage?

punch power on larger hands are = larger impact, but lower lbs per inch pressure.

Smaller = smaller impact but more lbs per inch pressure.

Although damage is subjective, probably more area damage from big hands, as opposed to deeper damaged from smaller?

All things being equal I think a bigger hand does more damage but its just my opinion with no science attached.

Yeah Tyson's upper body.

Ive always wondered how much he would weigh if he was 6'4... possibly 250+

Ike Ibeabuchi I think, was the closest to Tysons build, an four inches taller, his prime weight was about 236.

He was flustered and very very uncomfortable vs Ricky Hatton, was fatigue badly against Luis castillo I. Floyd Mayweather is a relax fighter, and just like Bernard Hopkins makes fighters fight at his pace..? he dictates the pace, because basically they are stalling or confused.

I would'nt say he has the highest VO2max, he is physically in condition..? Make no doubt about it, but his fights are not really high intensity.

Floyd Mayweather's fitness is overrated.
great point he hasnt been in any hards fights that would enable him to prove it
