Quick Facts

• Punching forces in amateur boxing are around 2500 N… If you weigh 70 kg (11 stone or 154 lbs), you’ll exert about 700 N of force just stood still. That makes punching force about 3.5 times body mass.

• And to make that even more impressive your punch takes around six-hundredths of a second (~60 ms) to throw.
