Default Muhammad Ali Speedbag

BORKED

It's hard to find any footage of him on Speed bag.
Fastest Heavyweight Hand-speed of All-Time?

Well, I'd say RJJ at 200lbs was quicker than Ali. Floyd Patterson would probably have handspeed near the same rate. Mike Tyson and Holyfield in their respective primes were also very quick with their hands.

Is the difference between these elite guys in speed minimal? Or really big?

i think people are not giving enough credit to his sense of rhythm. speedbag is not just about handspped, it's also about rhythm.

Sorry for reviving this thread, but that was an amazing clip of Ali on the speed bag, too bad your channel was closed.
When you get some time, can you re-upload it? I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Ali was faster than the white trailer trash he fought in the 70s. Fastest ever? Not so sure.

True. The technique of hitting the speed bag has seemed to change over the year just from watching clips of the old timers. Personally I think the speedbag is great at developing speed if you use it like the old timers by extending your punches more than is normally done nowadays. That rhythm is the gauge of your speed. I like to incorporate other movements such as slipping then hitting to work on overall speed. The faster that rhythm is going the faster my movements are. Could be used for developing overall all speed for other sport as well as long as you can proficiently hit the bag. Make any sense? Also, I had a trainer as a kid who wouldn't let me hit it with the side of my fist for whatever reason.
