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.

you have to be closer for the upper cut though.

Usually, uppercut.

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

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.

Chuck Liddel seems to like his over-hand right for knocking his opponent out.

Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but the boxer Leon Sphinx,who once fought Mohammed Ali for the title: Wasn't he known for his uppercut? Wasn't his uppercut known as "The Sphinx Jinx?"

I think it depends on the fighter 100%. For me my right hook and my overhand right are the strongest, but they would be nothing without my left cross or jab to set it up. I don't think I've ever thrown an uppercut. lol. I do like the left hand to set up the right leg though.

Ya, it depends on the fighter. But in terms of over all effectiveness and power i would say the overhand right. This, on average, is most powerful. its major flaw is that it leaves you open for a counter if you don't get the knock out. Thus, it is neccesary to set it up with some jab/cross combinations
