Nearly right but EVERYTHING can be explained scientifically. Guys that use leverage to really load up on their punches are constantly moving foot pressures around from foot to foot. The idea of 50 50 weight and neutral balance is a myth. If you had a set of scales under the feet of a banger like the young John The Beast Mugabe those scales would be shooting around all over the place and would go crazy when he throws a big one. In order to get maximum leverage from the ground the big puncher creates huge ground forces in the leg and feet of the foot he will be driving off and firms up the other leg his pivot will be rotating round. The pressure in the leg is increased just before the punch is thrown and has to be used in a split second because it is gone in a blink of the eye. If you watch some of Hearn's best right hands there is a loud foot stump in conjunction with the punch. That is what is going on. It is internal and what people call intangible but it can be scientifically explained although for the most part is hidden from all but the trained eye.
