Default Re: Difference between cross and straight?

For me a cross was called a cross because it came across rather than straight, but didn't loop like a hook. like a straight would be straight (obviously) a cross would be a diagonal straight across the chin, and a hook would be a hook (obviously)

I didn't know it came from the term to cross over your opponents hand as a counter, however it would be the same punch I always thought it was because it's easier to land a counter across rather than straight over the top.
