    I'll chime in here with timing, shoulder strength, everything else mentioned and add......My copy of Dempsey's Championship fighting is out on loan at the moment so this is going by memory......Dempsey say the speed bag lets you practice the downward chopping parry followed by a backhanded strike. Not very useful with gloves on but Dempsey fought most of his fights bareknuckle in the lumber camps and so on during his youth.

    Speed, co-ordination, slipping. Excellent piece of kit.

    It also teaches you to "pop" you're shoulders to get an extra spark of power in your punches. That's some good stuff right there, that "pop"
