Why do some boxers hit really really hard? What makes a puncher?
Ok Im pretty sure no one has the answer to this yet, but id be interrested in your theories on what makes some individuals extremely hard punchers.
So it must be genetic to a certain degree, but what specifically are they born with that others are not?
How important is technique? Is there a big divide in the level of power some boxers generate due to technique or are all pro boxers at a simlar level of technique when it comes to the body/power mechanics of a boxing punch?
It seems punchers come in all shapes and sizes, e.g. jerry coony, earnie shavers, rocky marciano, julian jackson, george foreman, mike tyson, etc etc
It must come down to many factors, but which do you think are the most important ones?
