SBleeder,

A cross does 'not' have to go over an opponents arm.

A counter-cross punch 'does' go over the opponents arm.
The "cross" crosses the opponent's arms. That is how it got it's name. It's too bad that almost everyone uses the term right cross for ANYTIME a boxer throws a straight right punch. But, if it's just a straight right punch and is not countering or going over their arm, it is just a straight right. Pretty simple, huh?
