    Power has never been a problem for me. If I really put my weight and commit to a shot I can rock a guy or score a knockdown. I thought I had ko power until I met my friend Fermin. When I shook his hand it was literally heavy, like his hand was weighing down my hand and he wasn’t forcing it, I thought it was crazy because he’s only around 135. He found out I boxed and wanted to train with me to learn self defense. I sparred with him the first day and first round he threw an arm punch that rocked the hell out of me. It was the first time I ever took a knee because I was hurt. I get up and we were gonna finish the round but I got intimidated and hit him with a hard body shot. Right after he stopped and said he had to use the restroom. I was like damn maybe I don’t have ko power.

    What are the times when you found out you have or don’t have ko power?

    I noticed whenever I played baseball with my friends I was always the one throwing the closest. Then one day at the gym the coach told me to hit the bag with the right hand. He said I had nothing behind it tbh. I'm more like sog strong in the clinch but not power punching. Another example would be Mosley. I usually do my chest exercises with a bar and 2 plates on each side max 9 sets 3 flat 3 incline 3 decline. But I haven't touched a weight in ages. I had some hernias in my belly that needed to be fixed. It wasn't like I was doing all ten reps with them lol.

    Crazy how you can be physically strong but still can’t manage to get a lot of power in your punches

    It takes roughly 45 pounds to knock someone out. Ask your trainer how you can improve your technique.
