One day ill be able to answer this from experience. Dreams.

I'd say Olympics, the fighting is different with the gear and points are only added by punches so people throw wild flurries and just don't look precise when throwing punches...Cough Zou Shiming. Power must not be accounted for i'm thinking, i know people can still get KO'd but it doesn't happen often right?

You aren't getting paid to fight so you really have to be motivated, and going up against the best from other countries, someone who may have trained as much as you or even more. Its like the Mortal Kombat tournament.

It's like you've never seen am boxing. Top ams rarely throw 'wild flurries' and Shiming was not an exception. Power was accounted for because it was one of the few ways to get judges sitting all around the ring to agree on a punch actually scoring. Successful ams did get paid for results in the olympics. Some by big pro contracts, others by big stipends from their governments.
