You can't tell the difference between a guy unloading and basically throwing haymakers to a guy punching on the back foot?
I will give you a little hint. You generate less power on the back foot. You also generate more power when you unload rather than just throw like you usually would. That's all the clues I'm going to give you though, you try work out the rest.
Good shit Fitz..Quality post..
The way to generate the most power is to be completely balanced,turning your foot with your hips,and having everything come at the same time..If throwing the right hand,your back foot should be pointing directly at the target..Most fighters are rarely ever completely balanced these days..Benny Leonard has the best balance I've ever seen a boxer ever have..He also knew how to get ever lb. in his body into a punch which is also something most boxers don't know how to do..In some cases I'd rather get hit by a 250 lb. heavyweight than a 160 lb. middleweight who knows how to get their whole body in a shot..
Tony Zale was known to hit harder than most heavyweights..Also,Tony Zale had really small hands..It's only a myth that bigger hands generate more power..
Floyd Mayweather and Paulie Malignaggi may actually be able to put guys down and out with 1 shot if they knew how to get their weight into the punches and would stay balanced when punching..Paulie throws punches like an amateur and Floyd is either leaning on his back or front foot depending if he is in his offensive or defensive mode..
Jack Dempsey- "I could turn the weakest,skinnest kid into a big puncher"......It's all about technique!!!
