Huge compared to what ? Playing ffr ? Please elaborate.

I'd rather get punched by the guy at 1:34 instead of 1:05 in OP's video haha. Seems like any change in height during the punch greatly reduces the force read by the machine

The average correlation between bench and punch force in that study is around .731, meaning that 53% of the variance in punch force can be accounted for by 1 RM Bench Press.

That is a very significant correlation in and of itself, you don't need to compare it to anything else to recognize that it is significant.

Though given that all of the correlations in that study are very large and in the same range, a simple interpretation is to assume a factor analysis would reveal a single underlying variable that accounts for the majority of the variance in all of those measurements. You could call that the general strength factor, which is just a statistical way of saying that if you take any reliable measurement of someones strength, it will be highly predictive of their punch force (and if those correlations are in any way accurate and reliable, strength would be the single largest predictive variable of punch force).

I feel like questioning correlation between upper-body strength and the force it can produce is kind if unnecessary

This is fun to read though
