As I said before, I know strength isn't everything. However, if all else is equal, but one person is stronger, the stronger person will hit harder/faster. Is that really hard to understand?
Think of it this way:
If you have two "natural-born" punchers (which is ridiculous and is just used as an excuse by weak individuals as to why they can't punch hard), they both have the same exact core strength, can both hit exactly as hard as the other one without ever touching weights, they both have equally good technique, but one of them decides to hit the weights and literally doubles his strength, you HONESTLY think that they'd still be equal?

Then tell me, what exactly makes a punch harder? Instead of telling me I don't know, you tell me. Don't link me to an article on a commercial site, you tell me and provide evidence (scholarly, peer-reviewed articles/journals).
As for not knowing "any of the boxers mentioned", it was ONE boxer. You cannot say that you know every single boxer ever. No one does.
