Default Overhand right, Overhand right Hook, Overhand cross, Dip the shoulder? Lean over? ???

For a normal right hook you remain vertical and your arm remains horizontal and you simply rotate for the punch. No problem there.

But for the overhand right hook which is just a regualr right hook but comming down at a horizontal angle, the angle alters the way the punch is thrown.

What am I supposed to do to get that angle when throwing this punch?

Do I dip my lead shoulder? Do I dip my lead leg? Do I rotate my hips horizontally and lean my torso sideways / diagonally down? Or something else?

Getting conflicting advice on this, what is the optimal way of doing this?

To execute this textbook you need to aim away diagonally from you opponents face and turn the punch in last second so you connect with the knuckle aspect of your fist!

So imagine a slightly taller opponent standing shoulder to shoulder, aim for him with a straight right hand, last second, turn that knuckle n hit the first guy on temple!!

Cool thats brilliant thanks mate!

Can you answer another question? How do you slip textbook style? Is it a bend of the waist? The leag? Or a rotation? Or an exagerated rotation? Or something else?

You bend the knees, if orthodox front knee to slip the jab n back knee to slip the right hand!

Obviously a little lateral movement helps but by bending the knees you can use this to throw ur next punch:

Bend the front knee to slip the jab, so you can come back up with a powerful left hook of ur own! Lateral movement alone won't help you achieve to much more power in comparison.

You should lean forward very slightly when you bend the knees and this naturally takes ur body angle slightly to the side. The aim is to make the opponents punch skim over ur head not to make them miss by a mile.

To land an over hand right you have to set it up good. When you throw your jab, throw with intention to blind your opponent and at the same time to create the angle to land the overhand right (when you step in with your jab you will pretty much creat the angle right there), then rip your overhand right.
