A good overhand punch is described by Mark Hatmaker (in his book Savage Srikes) as "pitching a softball in a trajectory where it will land 6 inches in front of your lead foot." In application against a straight boxing high lead cover (I cover that in my post here
), it will end up landing high on the persons head behind their cover as they turn into the angle of a straight punch. It's definitely a punch that commits your body mass into the technique, and is best used after setting up the opponent so that they expect more "orthodox" punches.
From my own experience, I'm not able to throw a good overhand punch, butI can definitely see its applicable use in the ring.
It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree
... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved
