How Hard Does a Boxer Punch in PSI?

Between 1,200 and 1,700 pounds per square inch, or psi, is the typical punching force of a heavyweight professional boxer. Mike Tyson’s punch was measured at 1,800 pounds per square inch, or nearly one tonne per square inch.

Normally, pressure gauges are used to measure pounds per square inch, but for boxing measures, specialised machines are employed. These machines determine the force of a punch by measuring the impact force, determining the area of the impact zone, and converting the result to pounds per square inch (psi). Therefore, if a punch exerts 1,500 psi and covers four square inches, it is comparable to 6,000 pounds of impact.
