Importance of training both fists for punching

Recently I have been watching a Tamil flick, Master, acted by Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi. It's a good action film and one of the highest gross Tamil film in the year 2021. I want to give a few details which I observed in this movie. The character of Vijay Sethupathi, Bhavani, was in the juvenile detention facility and been tortured by the warden (as instructed by the killers of Bhavani's parents). After getting numerous beatings from the detention facility warden, he started punching the wall as practice. He always uses his right-hand fist to punch the wall. 

Punching exercise will create a microfracture in the knuckles and grow stronger. Like I mentioned he always use the right-hand fist for training and never shown using the left arm fist for punching. In several scenes, he faces his enemy and beaten with his strong right-hand punch. Mostly a single punch create devastating damage to his enemies. 

All the greatest boxers are known for generating good power from both hands. That is one step closer to becoming legendary boxers. In the apex scene, he needs to face the protagonist, Vijay, in his role as JD, a college professor, known for college fights. JD is known for using tactics, one could easily be seen from the college politics scene how he managed to filter the thugs from the student's group. 

When JD and Bhavani faceoff in the climax fight, Bhavani appears to generate more power using his right-hand punch training. JD got a brutal attack and almost collapsed. But JD somehow manages to stand up for one more round. This time he understands the strength and weakness of Bhavani. Yes, Bhavani got strong right arm punching power. So, JD used a trick to damage it. (Please watch the fight scene, you will understand. It is available on Amazon prime). After the damage to his right-hand knuckles, Bhavani couldn't fight anymore. If he trained both the hand for punching, he could have won the fight, and the movie might end up with a different story.

This article is just to showcase the importance of the training for non-dominant hand, so it might be helpful in close quarters.
