Do your knuckles get bigger and harder(Well i know that just wanna hear what yall say) when you start Boxing? I heard things like the heavy bag workout is good for the knuckles.

Or is this a myth and is it just a genetic thing? I can see a diffirence between people, some have huge knucles others dont. And is this effective as a puncher in fights?

Also if you can i'd like to see pictures of Boxers with big knuckles.

Your hands have grown too? You mean they're more rough now? I can see what you mean with your knuckles though I've had the same thing.

This one dude thats about 40 that has been fighting since he was kid in puerto rico has knuckles the size of a clove of garlic. Since he was a kid he has used traditional bag gloves and no wraps. Yes, your knuckles will get one callused and two scar tissue buildup and in my opinion more bone density but that latter is not proven to my knowledge. I suggest protecting them as much as possible. Look how many fighter (PBF) have suffered hand and knuckle injuries throughout careers now look how many Tito Trinidad has suffered NONE! Did you catch how much his Dad wraps his hands...

A callused knuckle is not much different than a non callused knuckle when you have peak force (heavyweight) on impact of 0.4 ton delivered at a velocity of 8.9 meters/sec, which represents a blow to the head approaching 0.63 ton. The latter is equivalent to swinging a padded wooden mallet with a mass of 6 kg at 20 miles per hour.22 Force is transmitted to the skull.

It's a myth, your knuckles will not "grow" by boxing.

Makes perfect sence, good post.
I can see how bigger knuckles, or fists can be an advantage. Marciano, Liston and Tyson were big punchers with huge fists.

only people i have seen with the big nuckles had broken their hands fist fighting, not boxing. my dad had the big ugly knuckles as well as all my uncles and cousins, but they came up in hells kitchen when it was a rough neighborhood.
