What's the most powerful punch?

I don't know which one it is.....Is it the cross or hook? or maybe upper cut? I like my hook and it's stronger then my cross but I jsut have bad hip movement for the cross.....So What's the most powerful punch?

In Terms of boxing, no haymakers

the jab is the medium ranged weak but fast opener
The jab is used for seting up another and harder strike

The cross is the medium ranged strong but slower opener
the cross is also used for setting up another and harder strike and can stagger an oponent. However, it is not nesassarily used as a fight finisher

The Hook is the close ranged strong and quicker than uppercut strike

The uppercut is the strike that is close ranged, strong, but slower than the hook.
I would say that it is the hardest. it also is great because if you land a solid one the person will most likely drop their arms and stagger a little if not a lot.
However, it is harder to land one and if you dont hit the person you can fall off balance and leave youself open. The reason why we don't see very many people hit or ko'd with these is for the reason that people use them minimally.

IMO, the uppercut is the strongest.

you have to be closer for the upper cut though.

Usually, uppercut.

But if you're someone like Wanderlei, then hook.

Ill go for the hook. Better chance of hitting the chin with a cross but the hook probably has more power, usually hits the temple or eye area with hooks. And the question was "Whats the most powerful punch" so.

It depends on the fighter. For me it is the overhand right, which I learned from watching alot of chuck.

I would personally put my right hand (Karate punch, Gacka Zukie, Reverse punch, Cross or whatever you want to call the straight right hand) over a cross or upercut. However I am aware that not alot of people use it due to the fact that unless your superfast It's an easy block, expecially if you chamber it, which I do although it is very faint and I'll often use this to my advantage by fainting or distracting with a chamber then following with the oppisite hand or such.

wait, is your right hand your lead hand, because if so, i would have to strongly disagree. The jab, though it can be "strong", is definitely not the "strongest" punch
