Default what is more beneficial

i need to know what is more beneficial to me...do you think it is better to lift weights and have more weight behind your punches and punch slower or to have less weight behind your punch and punch faster...Or can you be just as fast with any kind of weight????

What a stupid question. Lifting weights doesnt make you slower if you lift properly aka sport specific training.

Joe Louis didn't lift weights but he had fast hands and a knockout punch. Rocky Marciano didn't lift weights either, he had slow hands and a knockout punch. Fast or slow, it don't matter a bit, to have knockout power you need the right genes not the right weight training program. History has proven that.
