Rampage punches 1800 PSI. I remember on Rocky 4, they were saying, "A normal heavyweight, averages 700 pounds of pressure per square inch. Drago averages 1850 pounds."

That's interesting considering Houston Alexander had to get all adrenaline pumped to hit 1000psi. His calm punch only registered 600psi.

Yeah, completely different punch. Houston's was just an arm punch - just a straight overhand right whereas Rampage had a full step and twisted at the hips.

I'd still say Rampage would probably hit harder if they did the same experiment, but he's also a much larger person than Houston.
