Leon Spinx was a south paw with a hard right hook he dubbed "the Spinx Jinx." Besides Ali he also fought other notables like Mike Tyson who knocked him out in 91 seconds. A waste of a PPV.

Clean effective punching is the name of the game when boxing and it's the punch you don't see coming that gets you. The left hook is a punch thrown tight on the inside that opponents don't see coming because of the distance and angle it comes from. The right uppercut (slightly more powerful than the left uppercut) is another punch effective for knockouts because it's thrown tight and on the inside. They NEVER see this one coming too unless they are looking down.

It doesn't have to be as dramatic as Chuck's punch. It is sort of like a cross with a vertical hook. I don't know how much that helps. "Performed in a similar motion as the hook, it is done in a manner so the blow lands from a vertical angle rather than a horizontal one. It involves leaning the upper body sideways while rotating the striking arm towards the target. It is useful in surprising an opponent who is suspecting a more 'orthodox' punch." Found this on a boxing website. I guess the punch is hard to explain with out a visual. I will look for one.

Max Baer vs Lou Nova I 1939 - Google Video

You might remember Max Baer if you've ever seen Cinderrela (sp) Man. He's the one throwing all the overhand's.

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.
