Punching Power PSI

Hey guys, I've been watching quite a bit of youtube videos on Bruce Lee. I always thought it'd be interesting to measure punching power. I understand different machines measure punching power (PSI) differently. I was curious to see how hard people punched in this forum so if anyone is willing to list their stats I'd be curious to read it. Also, if anyone knows any accurate methods of testing it, I'd be glad to hear about it. I heard heavyweight pros average at about 700 lbs PSI but then again, just going off naysay.

I think Frank Bruno hit around 1400 psi.

honestly that machine means little when it comes to real punching power. I mean, it does mean the guy hits hard but doesnt mean the guy has Knockout power necessarily.

It measures sheer strenght and the numbers are likely to go higher the bigger the hitter is (as long as proper technique is used in the punch).
