How do you throw an overhand right hook properly?

I find myself either leaning in too much as in bowing forward if I try to lean into it like I do with a close range overhand punch.

Or I find the horizontal rotation of normal right hook dosnt mesh with the diagonally down ark of the overhand right hook.

Either way I cant do it properly and would like to know the proper way to throw it. Cant find any instructions on youtube etc.

If you are 'bowing over' it means you are trying to throw it too hard.

EDIT: heres chuck:

No problem dude. If you just put 'Overhand right' into the search on youtube it brings up pages upon pages of technique instructional videos.

take your pick
