Tony Canzoneri on the speed bag

A small, leather, air-filled bag connected to a swivel, and used by a boxer to develop hand-eye coordination necessary to hit a moving opponent. It improves and builds hand speed and muscle stamina. (Boxers usually hit it for three minutes at a time--the length of a round.) It improves rhythm and defense. It allows a boxer to practice slipping and rolling with punches.
