Do people know for a fact what creates what people call "punching power"? Is there a definitive scientific guide or study on the subject? A generally accepted theory? What we do know is that size is an important factor. Heavyweights score more KOs in their divisions than the smaller guys. To me, that seems like a given. But we also have guys like GGG who aren't muscular, aren't explosive, and don't land clean technical crisp shots on their opponent, but seem to drop and KO people repeatedly. With most fighters, we can easily see why they score KO'S. They're either counter fighters who catch someone coming in, very big and powerful, small and explosive, or all those qualities. But with GGG, he seems very lumbering and slow, when compared to other boxers. His strikes don't look like they're packed with energy (though they obviously are) or fast. What would one attribute his KO power to? I'm starting to think that what many people call KO power, is just finishing ability, one guy tougher, aggressive, and pursuant of his opponent. But then guys like Anthony Johnson and Foreman exist, and it gets thrown right out the window. Not to mention, that we have plenty of other guys in combat sports who are known for their lack of KO power, even when trying their best to finish opponents in an aggressive manner. I know my post Is rather confusing so I'll just simply if the question. What is triple G doing to score so many finishes? I'm not taking away from his boxing, but technically ON PAPER he's not that good compared to many other guys.
