If you're opponent defends against you're right straight by blocking with his left or slipping to his left.... It only makes sense to slight arch you're punch
This. Some fighters such as Rigondeaux almost exclusively throw their rear hand as an overhand punch. Look at Marquez' first knockdown in the recent Pac fight. The best punch Antonio Tarver ever threw was an overhand left, pretty impressive for an 'arm punch'

Good example of an overhand/looping punch vs a taller fighter

Good shout, Martinez is another one who often throws looping punches with his rear hand.

another words beginers will just go out and throw overhands be falling all over the place getting countered and look rewards....professional fighter who use those throw them when the stances are in certain postions (they have gained some angle) and generally with the punch they move their heads to a outside position.

You can see a straight right immediately as well if that's the only way you fire your rear hand, the more variety in your punches the more you slow down your opponents reactions. Overhand punches are arm punches? You obviously are a beginner if you think you're only allowed to throw a straight right and nothing else.
Dont waste everyones time.
You obviously need proper lessons.
