Default Big Back?

Does having a big back or a wide frame usually mean you have a lot of punching power? Look at Miranda, Miranda has a big back, he's got wings and everything. Klitschko also has a big back and Sam Peter and Rahman and others...

power is not independent on one particular thing. anything, i mean anyhting that can boost your power should be utilized unless it interferes with speed, relaxation, general health, etc.

having a strong back certainly helps. myself, i have been researching into the anatomy and structure that makes up the torso rather than just blindly following weightlifting routines and the like.

I beleive Miranda got that back from all the work he did through his childhood and doing a ****load of pushups. I don't know if it'd be the same for lifting weights, like what if instead Miranda did back exercises with weights instead of using his own body weight, would he have more power lifting weights, or from doing push ups and other exercises that he'd use his body weight?

It helps a lot, but bigger legs and abs are more of a factor.

I believe it has more to do with shoulders and neck, and also wrist lenght and arm lenght.

Broad shoulders seem to help. Look at Hearns for example.

And Max Baer and Tim Witherspoon. Very broad torso'ed guys. A great deal of it is bone structure, not just musculature.

Having a huge frame like that helps you absorb a punch much better, as well as giving you a "heavier" punch. Doesn't neccesarily make you a one punch knockout fighter of course.
