The difference between being "fast" or "quick" in Boxing

There's a difference between being fast and quick in Boxing. Many people think if a fighter is fast then he is also quick but this isn't always the case. Being quick is having the abilty to react to the opponent. For example you need to be relatively quick to have good defense or to be an efficient counter puncher. Many fighters are fast when they deceide to intiate a punch or manuever.

If more fighters follow…
