Not so.

Not so with a straight right.
You hide it by keeping close to your side.
Plus much more power in a straight right.
Your never predictable if you can box, feint, and use your jab to set up your punches.
Plus overhand, looping punches are arm punches --- no real power.
Much more power in a straight right , which when thrown properly rolls off your body.
Now go ahead and do what you want.
I hate to see beginners get sucked in by your comments.
