What about the punches the fighter doesn't intend?

Training can lead to automation, when a fighter is rocked, he might throw an unconscious punch and hit. Again, if he connects, one would have to say it was rather lucky, but one would also have to credit the training involved to cement that automation.

In this case, intent at the moment, has nothing to do whatsoever with the 'luck' of the outcome.
