There's a difference between the most powerful and the most dangerous punch. The hammer fist mentioned earlier could be deadly if you hit in the right spot, but doesn't pack as much power as a simple cross. A hook rotates your head while a cross just snaps it back- they do different things.

I'd speculate that it's probably easier to knock someone out with a hook, because as your head rotates it pinches nerves and arteries, sending your body a signal to shut down, while you'd need to hit someone with enough force to cause a concussion to knock someone out with a straight punch.
