I think people use the term "check hook" to describe different hooks.
I always thought the term "check hook" was used to describe a lead hook thrown whilst pivoting on the front foot i.e pivoting right to avoid the right hand whilst throwing the hook simultaneously.
However, I know others think of it as you have mentioned above.
