Default question on right hook as sp

As a southpaw I and a more taller person naturally whenever I throw my lead hook I always hit them at the end of the punch (long lead hook) and it always is more of a set up punch or distraction it never really has to much power because of the range. (trying to put more power on it)

I heard a coach working with a southpaw saying you have to crowd his lead side when coming in, it'll put more power on the hook as it will be shorter and negate his counter since you're so close to hmi (good positioning foot deep to outside)

I never tried this tactic and want to see more peoples input on this. A good example would be the ward vs dawson fight andre kept crowding his lead side and dawson didn't get a chance to execute much off that lead hand for that reason
