Thank you for writing to us.
Some people hold their breath when throwing a punch. Holding your breath causes the Valsalva. Which is a manoeuvre that increases the pressure in the chest. This can get referred to the ear.
Learn to breathe through a punch and talk to your coach about it to see if it is correct. If it continues after that, please write to us again.
All the best.
