Default Boxing and muscle

Is it possible to be an effective boxer and not have that much muscle? I mean look at guys like Tito Trinidad and kelly pavlik, epically pavlik being a knockout artist, I was just wondering if their both great fighters and don't have that much arm strength then is it really necessary to have it? What about in amateur boxing where the point isn't to score a KO just to score points?

Yes... Pavlik punches with great leverage and Tito did too with his left hook. The power is not in the arms it come from the legs, core, lats, they deliver the most power.

The power is in the mechanics/technique and the intention ( attitude ).

Just because a guy is jacked doesn't mean ****. The cns ( central nervous system, brain ) thinks in terms of movements, not muscle. So if a fighter is really jacked, the question is, is the cns educated/trained in terms of moving with power?

Yup, Sugar Ray Robinson, Tommy Hearns and Julian Jackson would all agree.
