Whats the reason why boxers make that breathing noise?

Whats the reason why boxers make that breathing noise everytime they throw the jab? You know what I mean? Its that short, fast, exhale when they throw a jab or do combinations. Whats the reason behind that/purpose? If you could provide a website/video I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

there are a few reasons for doing that...and not only by boxers:

- when moving around in your stance, you are usually relaxed, maintaining a slight contraction in your abs. the moment you are about to make contact with your target, you contract your muscles...exhaling in that moment gives you extra power in the punch by tightening your core (the key link that allows the power generated from the lower body to be transmitted to the punch), makes you less susceptible to having your "wind" knocked out) and gives you a sense of rhythm while allowing you to keep your energy levels for a longer period.

Hope this helps

gigica is 100% correct, breathing is very important in all sports not just combat sports, you even use it in lifting. the loud yells in karate and ur so called boxer's breathing noise is basiclly the same thing.

If you wanna test this out, throw 5 straights, 5 cross's and 5 hooks as fast as you can, exhaling each punch. Then wait until your not tired at all and do it at the exact same speed, without exhaling. You'll gas like a mother.
