'Punch above its weight' = đấm (bốc) hơn hạng -> nghĩa là nhắm mục tiêu cao hơn thực lực của mình (a country or organization has more influence internationally than its size would suggest; someone having a romantic relationship with someone who is a lot more attractive than they are...).

Ví dụ
Texas bank is punching above its weight class with latest acquisition.

World Cup 2018: How Croatia punches above its weight to take on the big boys at their own game.

Bellbrook Public School has punched above its weight to play its part in contributing to the drought relief by raising $350 with the support of the local community.

In fact the cold war and Britain’s obsession with punching “above its weight” meant that it was defence spending, not welfare, that consumed 10% of GDP in the early 1950s – including Attlee’s short second ministry, when Bevan resigned as minister of labour in disgust at the introduction of charges for false teeth and spectacles to pay for arms.
