i've been told that you shouldnt throw right hooks from a traditional stance. I did it anyway because it seems like thats open a lot in sparring and I ended up hurting my wrist pretty bad. Its just about back to full strength after a month or so and I've been working on sticking with straights, but I still tend to throw it if an opponent tries to cover up.

Right hooks from an orthodox stance a more of a liability than an asset.

- they're somewhat roundhouse, telegraphed, and easy to slip
- if you miss, you can hurt your shoulder
- if you connect, you can hurt your hand or wrist
- 95% of right hooks... miss the target completely (you see it often)
- after you miss, it takes longer to get back on defense
- and you can get countered silly

The only guy I seen use a right hook somewhat successfully was Lennox Lewis. But remember what happenned to him when he missed against Oliver McCall.

You just don't see good and great fighters using right hooks.

This is bull****.

You can use right hooks.

I use right hooks all the time on dudes that are tall as ****.

I send a right hook to their body sometimes instead of jabbing my way inside.

When I get inside, every opportunity I get, I throw a right hook.

Right hooks hurt people.

It's a good bet that you'll get smoked one day when you try it against someone good.

wait just read the whole thread why are you lot hating on the good old right hook. it's big and bold if youre on the inside they are the perfect tool im a soutpaw so i would call it a left hook but same applies that it is a powerful and can be very crisp punch.

it isnt a great tactics to use it to much because as we have already heard it's a big movment form your furthest hand...so the time to travel and get countered is a very high percentage chance of a cross sandwich on the mush.

it's a punch a tool if you use it right it will work for you
