Here's the thing: If I'd pursued baseball, I think I would have made an excellent right hand pitcher but, (and this shows just how little I know), that doesn't translate into punching power or even punching speed. Of course I've only done some sparring because while I can handle hits to the head, getting punched to the body absolutely KILLS me.
Oh, and those "test your punching power" machines that you used to see in arcades? They laugh and return my quarter.
At 33 I'm a 6th ranked challenger against children 7 and younger...:thumbsup:
