Very interesting read.. although I've never practiced it so don't know for sure, the vertical fist and straight arm for kinetic energy part reminds me of Wing Chun principles.
It was also a good reminder that boxing is a sport and the gloves make a big difference, so a lot of traditional martial arts don't get the stand-up credit they deserve as people tend to compare in the context of a gloved ring bout.
