    What does that have to do with punching power?

    That can definitely add a bit to it.

    One of the things that I brought over to boxing from my years in Isshin Ryu Karate that I believe helped me in my career was the hand, wrist & forearm strength & conditioning. And years later, when discussing it with Manny Steward he told me that he employed very similar techniques in his conditioning program for his fighters because he believed that it definitely added to the effectiveness of their punches. He said that he liked to think of his fighter's weapons as being one solid piece from the elbow down to the fist like a battering ram. He wanted no give in the fist or in the hand when they landed a blow.

    I also believe that it prevented me from having the sort of hand injuries that many fighters suffer from. I never once experienced any injuries to my hands other than the routine sore knuckles that come with hard training & fights.

    Oh, I'll bet it has. And I'm sure it's produced far better results than point Karate ever has. <45>

    any recommended drills for this? I’ve got a bare knuckle boxer I’ve just started working with who will be fighting for bkfc in September and I’d love to start him on some hand/wrist conditioning and strengthening

    Well, my routine involves a lot of pushups on my five fingers spread out & on my fists. punching a makiwara board, wrist rolls with 30 lb weights, squeezing hand/grip strengtheners & the use of sand ( digging, squeezing etc, ). Much like this video:

    Always appreciate the insight, especially the cross over from diff. sports. Have you had any soccer players before? How well do they transition?

    my pitching power is scary. Due the same mechanics of boxing all my life, I am able to throw a baseball faster than most professional baseball players. Seriously, you dont want guys like GGG or Canelo throwing baseballs, they can throw them through brick walls.
