Best knockout punch?

What do you all think the best punch to knock someone out is? From personal experience, the right hook has proved itself to be best for me.

It really depends on what your oppenent is set up for, but what's the best punch if say your opponent's guard is down? As I already said, I think the hook.

Any other suggestions? (not just cross, uppercut, hook, etc., just any punch including wierd ones such as the kangaroo hook, superman punch, etc.)

Punch to the liver! Kangaroo hook sounds delicious, what is that?

A kangaroo hook is a hook with your leading hand with a leap foward to go along with it. It is delicious if you can connect good with it.

most fun to knock out with, the superman punch
most practical, right cross

Yeah, a cross is a good way to do it. Hooks, in my opinion, tend to look better when thrown. Not to mention I've heard if you hit someone a hook, it causes their brain to bounce of their skull more than a straight punch does.

I was sparring last night and kept doing this to a kid who was hitting a little too hard. Which only made him hit me harder. Which only made me do it more. Eventually he told me to stop "headhunting." But he didn't lighten up at all. So I resorted to sweeping him.

But I like that name. Kangaroo punch. Kanga-punch. Yes.

Doesnt matter if you hit them on the chin. Shock sensor in the back of the jaw shuts the brain off regardless of bouncing. Plus I'd rather see an awesomely placed cross land flush than a hook. Like Grove's KO of Day. Gorgeous, gorgeous punch
