Yup.

Anything besides a jab is a power punch.

But also the fact punch stats landed are very mis leading. I use them mostly for how many punches thrown.

You can somewhat use them for how many a fighter missed, if he was only counted for landing less than 10% of his punches.

Ex. Tarver vs Jones Rounds 3-6. Tarver was registered as throwing only 25 "power punches" and landing only 4 if I remember correctly.
