I was Watching a rerun of FSN Sports Science and saw an episode where they compared a female fighter’s punch to an male Olympic boxer.
Dutch female boxer Lucia Rijker who is famous for her role Billie ‘The Blue Bear’ in the Oscar winning movie Million Dollar Baby showed that girls can hit just as hard in this previous episode of Sports Science.
Lucia uses proper technique to get full leverage on her punches, she punched harder than Olympic boxer Moe who is the same size as her at 140 lbs, Moe hit the punching dummy at 720 pounds of force, Lucia hit the punching dummy with 922 pounds of force the same as UFC 205 pounder Houston Alexander, the Sports Science episode where they tested Houston Alexander he was even injected with adrenaline so his punches were even more intense.
Lucia Rijker’s punching technique is what helped her propel her body weight into the punch. It would be interesting to see a 147 pound Manny Pacquiao doing a Sports Science test just to see how hard he really hits.
Could Manny Pacquiao or a 135 lb power puncher Edwin Valero hit harder than a 205 MMA fighter like Houston Alexander or Kimbo Slice? I would like to see an episode with one of those smaller guys testing their power, especially since so many meat heads say they don’t wanna watch a 140 pound fighter because they don’t have power.
