the most likely to ko soemone with one strike is an uppercut becuase if it lands, it lands hard right on the jaw. then id have to say for me anyway a right cross, overhand right.

hooks are more diffiocult to land on the jawbone as your opponent if often covering up like little girl so his hands are right at the sides of his jaw. thats when uppercuts and muay thai knee's are effective for the finish

You are correct, I'm suprised to see how many people think it's the hook, cross etc... the straight right hand or as some call it "overhand" is the most powerful punch, obviously the straight left if your a southpaw, just watch the Franklin - Quarry fight and you see that Rich knocks him out with the straight left punch. Many one punch KO's are done with the straight punch (overhand) it's the one punch where your arm is at full extension meaning all your power is at the very end, if you have the right gap your opponent is in full one hell of a ride.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

100% correct, ask any good boxer, Muay Thai fighter and they will agree with you.

overhand right generally may be the most powerfull but not the most effective. if your fighting someone good and you cant just catch them and knock them out with big overhand right trying to catch soemone with that punch could either be a good or bad idea depending on there style and skill.

Accuracy and Timing probably have more to do with getting a KO over raw power. The generation of force between two people can have many factors, and many KO artists usually rely on setting up the opponent over swinging wildly.

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.

by overhand do you mean like a chuck liddel KO punch with the whip of the fist like a clock at the end of the motion?

my most powerfull punch is a right cross. but there is a punch called a hammer punch that is called the death touch that I saw on the descovery chanal on a show called fight science. the messured the amount of force speed velocity ect. it turned out to be more than lethal.

Absolutley but everything is about accuracy and timing, the question was "most powerful" and the overhand is the most powerful due to full extension of the arm.

DOUBLELEGTAKEDOWN Yes, like Chuck Lidell does to most of his opponents, he lands a hook or cross but usaully as the set-up punch only then he knocks them out with the straight overhand.

just like a hamer make a fist and raise your arm then bring your fist down like a hammer. hit with the bottom of your fist. It can be thrown like strait down or at an angle. The ninjas call it the death tuch. on the discovery chanel show I was talking about they had a ninja preform it. he hit a dummy in the solarplex area and they said it had enough force to stop a persons hart.
Here is a picture.
National Geographic Channel - Fight Science: Video Preview
this is an intro video of the show I saw. It talks alot about what you want to hear. you will see a guy in a black gi throw it tword the end of this video. it dose not look like mutch but it is the death touch.
P.S. The show will be shown again on dec 9 at 9:00
