Bear in mind that much of modern boxing instruction totally sucks. There isn't any good striking in MMA, as far as proper boxing is concerned, and that the popular understanding of generating force has become "developing your core". This seems to imply stability balls and yoga and odd-crap with resistance bands....

...so, buyer beware
