Thereīs absolutely no way someone could beat up the kind of opponents Batman faces without having huge strenght. You donīt knockout multiple big and skilled opponents just with speed and technique. You need power. You need strenght. Plus, the amount of damage Batman can sustain is something only a big strong man would be able to do. He needs to be big. No doubt about it. Not like a professional bodybuilder. But he needs to be way above average. And anyone who could do all the things Batman does would be ripped, big and strong.
