In layman's terms, leverage in punching just means the amount of comfortable space you're able to create within yourself to generate power in a punch. Try punching from one inch away from something. You basically have zero leverage, which is why the punch is very weak. That's why all these "one-inch punch" legends are so intriguing.

So a puncher can create internal space for generating power in a punch. Think of the punch as a little guy getting a running start at jumping a really long distance, but all this happens within the body of the guy throwing the punch. That's leverage, and that's punching power. Can't teach it.
