    Karate punches are pushed like punches in MMA bouts compared to snapped punches by boxers, that`s why Conor (who uses a lot of karate skills) couldn`t translate his power using bigger gloves v Floyd, are there any MMA fighters that could punch as hard as the hardset punching boxing when using boxing gloves?

    Short answer is no, simply because world class boxers only punch Usually from the time they are very young, Tma and mma don’t emphasize punching near as much, however there are exceptions as 1 punch ko power imo is something you’re born with, like a guy like nganno would probably do fine
