When we first watched this video of Kickboxer Pavel Trussov showing how fast he can punch, we thought it was sped up. It’s not. This guy really did manage 334 to perform full-extension punches in just one minute, setting a Guinness World Record in the process. Give him 3 minutes, and he can manage 919 punches.
Quell is a wearable device that provides a resistance-based upper body workout while you play a video game. As you punch, its motion tracking sensors detect your movements and let you knock out foes on screen. The game plays on PC, Mac, or mobile device, which can then be connected to your TV screen.
These high tech boxing gloves have built-in 6-axis motion sensors that work with a mobile app to track your performance as you jab, cross, hook, and uppercut. And to prove that they’re badass, they feature interactive lighting effects that provide real time feedback on your workout.
The story of boxing great Roberto Durán , the upstart Panamanian who rose from the streets to defeat then Welterweight champion Sugar Ray Leonard, then infamously forfeited the rematch mid-bout. With a pro record of 103 wins in 119 fights, he’s still one of the best of all time.
