Hopkins does it a lot as he steps in. He steps in, ducks a bit, leans to the left, then sneaks it in.
Not really a hook. Either a leaning right cross or short overhand me thinks. For both you can do palm open. Not so much right cross but given the situation it can work. I don't think your thumb is completely up when you are doing the Hopkins move, more 45 degrees.

Is that right?
