I got rid of the vid after realizing that it had very little actual heavy bag work in it, though Tyson does throw one really nice uppercut at the beginning :)

I've never found a satisfactory way to throw an uppercut on the heavy bag, so I compromise and use it to stop the bag with my forearm as the bag is on the returning swing after a jab or a combo.
You still get the mechanics of the uppercut, the targeting (up through your opponent's guard from close in*), and I found it helps with timing, too.
I don't think you get the benefit of the heavy bag (building power), though, so It's maybe better to drill the uppercut on pads, where possible.
*I'm short, everything I throw is from close in!!!Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

Unless you get one of these cool things.
I've never got to use one, but I think they would be good.

bags like this are pretty decent for uppercuts to the body
never used one of those blocky things. The only thing I can see not liking about that is the fact that it's affixed to a wall or something so you don't really have a mobile target, plus you don't have the freedom to work combinations like you do with a bag.
Personally I think working uppercuts into your combinations is much more important than having something you can practice uppercutting hard.

I would say a good portion of Pacquiao's uppercut success is based on Roach's use of that punch during his fighting days.
Although I don't recall Roach using the lead hand uppercut as much as the right uppercut I am amazed at Pacquiao's handspeed with that left uppercut.

Shovel hooks or this:
Learning to bounce this thing on the chain without pushing really improved my uppercuts.
