Do you think you can punch as hard as Malignaggi or Chris Algieri?

    Malignaggi and algieri would knock tinmans block off into the land of Oz. Technique plays an important part in generating power, and from what info i gather from tinmans OP, his technique needs alot of work. Malignaggi in 2. Algieri in 1.

    Myself as an amateur had a few TKO's but know from experience getting knock outs isn't easy. I sparred with many pros some with a few knockouts and other guys who have a lot of knock outs and felt their power. I remember when I had been boxing for about 2 years sparring a pro after winning a few amateur fights and being stunned at how good he was. He caught me with a right that almost put me down and sparred rounds with me and two other amateurs back to back. I was expecting to find out he had some fantastic record and was a contender but found out his record was 10-3-1 at the time with 7 knock outs. What we gotta remember when we watch the good pros on television with there records which most of the time have at least or close too half their wins by knock out that these guys are usually legends in some gyms. In some city or town in some gyms they are known by those there as one tough dude and a great fighter. Most guys who go pro at all are considered by some a real good fighters. Guys like Malgginagi and Algeri probably don't have the most concussive shots but probably hit with a lot of snap and could give a good beating and boxing lesson to almost anyone who step into the ring with them. They both hit hard compared to most people in a boxing gym and competitors just not hard compared to other top notch pros. It would be foolish for someone who doesn't box to think they could out punch either it usually takes years to become a good puncher and your skills don't always translate to being a concussive knock out puncher.

    Levels. Unless anyone here has trained with at least national level pros, don’t think you can say for sure. If you have 100lbs on them and an amateur boxer then most probably the case.

    I’ve trained with national level pros who would bully guys around the ring with 50lbs on them in sparring. When I watched them on domestic level pro boxing on TV, it looked like they had very average power. Against guys with world class chins, they would probably be considered feather fisted.

    khan is a great example of this. He was knocking mofos out in the olympics, that’s how he got famous in the UK. Do you know how hard it is to knock someone out with one punch with headgear and 10-12oz gloves? Yet alone another Olympian level boxer. Khan looks feather fisted in the pros.

    with that said, algeiri hits hard enough, but Paulie is a feather puncher for sure, everyone punches harder than him.

    I had the pleasure of watching 2 real heavyweights in the gym one day sparring. They were no where in rankings, maybe top 100 for Sheldon Hinton. But by golly the sound of their punches! Never heard anything as loud as that. That same gym used to visit the jail for fights once a year. They told me the year previously this kid from the cougar gym, faced the toughest guy in the prison. Idk who won but that tall kid they were talking about, hit me so hard through my guard that I was literally shook and rattled. He had a Tommy Hearns complex/build, tall lanky and wiry= massive puncher, giant right hand.

    Also one of my coaches said you should never go pro unless you're knocking everybody out, just his opinion.

    I don’t know, I work the bag and feel I know how to throw a decent punch.. what makes these guys superhuman? Roids? Forgive me if I’m being pompous but throwing proper punches isn’t extremely difficult. What is difficult is defense, counter punching etc.. I feel just throwing punches myself and many others hear could hit as hard

    I like to think of it this way.

    Conor McGregor can punch. He hurts guys in MMA more with his accuracy than his power, but has definite power in MMA. I cannot imagine anyone on this board and around his weight thinks they can hit harder than Conor. Right?

    Conor legitimately looked like the most pillow fisted boxer i've ever seen in my life vs Floyd. Even in the 1 or 2 shots he landed completely clean on Floyd, Floyd acted as if he'd been bitten by a mosquito.

    Judging by that fight, Paulie hits harder than Conor with boxing gloves on. So while Paulie might be pillow fisted compared to pro's, I imagine he hits harder than anyone on this board south of 170.

    *And when Paulie actually decided to really hit Lobov in the barenuckle fight instead of trying to point box, he landed on Lobov pretty heavy. Something to think about.

    I've got Malignaggi syndrome myself, except with a severity previously unknown to man. It's like trying to beat someone with two baby birds.

    What makes it worse is that after my wife started watching fights with me, she wanted to try it out and is a natural puncher, normal looking women's hands but hit like bricks.

    Anyway I'm sure any high level pro WW does a lot more damage. As a big guy though I've always wondered about the power of the really small guys.

    Interesting topic. As many of us have found out over the years, it’s a lot easier to hit a bag hard or a punching machine in a bar hard than it is to hit another guy who is trying to do the same to you. Good boxers can usually maintain balance and defensive responsibility when they punch. I remember fighting a smaller guy who supposedly didn’t have a huge punch. He slipped my punch and hit me on the button with a left hook that I never saw coming. My legs suddenly turned to jello.

    I’m certain my punches were much more powerful but it didn’t matter. Landing them is another matter. Getting countered when you are throwing bombs can make a skilled opponent’s punches feel like Hagler.
