Watching Parkinson Ali throwing weak arm punches against Earnie Shavers, one naturally attributes this to his catastrophic physical state. However, rewatching prime Cassius Clay, he didn't sink into his punches there either, not even when he had them shelled up. Now, there was some shoulder snap and torque from young Clay's hooks and sweeping rights but very little in comparison to text book right hands and hooks. It makes sense when he dances around but not when he gets the upperhand and they are in a defensive position. I love the fact that he could box his own unique way and yet toy with everyone, but it still baffles me why Clay never put his hip and entire body into his punches. Any theory on why?
