    Oh boy, you should find that kid and tell him that he broke world record for juniors:

    His performance is above "Elite" classification for adults:

    Btw, Artur's personal record (~350lbs) is almost "masters" standard for powerlifters, not bad for boxer.

    That is very strong for a boxer I agree. I witnessed an 18 year old 150 pound kid bench 405 first hand. Could have been less than 3 reps but it was 4 plates. Maybe he was on something but if youve ever been in a highschool weight room for football or wrestling seeing someone bench press 3/4 plates is not uncommon at all.

    Remember physical strenght does not equate into punching power.

    Andre ward was super strong in the clinch but wasn't a ko puncher

    Also the short long armed Mosley could bench press 300 yet he couldn't ko a hands down winky wright with his hardest punch.

    We could have lost Beterbiev if that **** had fallen in his chest/neck.

    Valuev is a good example too. Strong as a bear, but can't break an egg with a punch.

    1. He might rarely ever work on bench. If he doesnt, than lack of strength in that area would be understandable.

    2. Context is everything. We have zero idea how fatigued he was before this attempt.

    3. The fact that you can possibly combine both 1 and 2, in that, he possibly rarely works on bench and he had already done workouts before this video and was at least slightly fatigued, would actually make this video completely understandable.
