What is that sniffing noise boxers make when throwing punches?

Every time a boxer throws a punch you will hear a sniffing sound; this sound is known as a "snort." Boxers are taught to exhale when they punch because it feels like the punch is being delivered with more power.
The training of boxing, more than most sports, tends to be ruled by tradition rather than scientific research. It is uncertain how much this "snort" actually helps the boxer.
