Does anyone have a tips on how to do this properly, or maybe a link to an instructional on it.


For reference, I'm talking about the leaping left hook that Tyson and Patterson were famous for.

Do you mean how to land it, or the mechanics of making it fast and hard?

Duck underneath your opponents right hand or left hook.

Explode upwards and allow your upward trajectory to carry you forward while you throw a left hook.

think of it like close-lining someone, but with your left hook, get outside, and go in with the hook BEFORE THEY TAKE THE HALF STEP TO FACE YOU AGAIN

The shoulder dip to the left first is key to getting good leverage. Phone Post

Also you need to throw it from a solid base and LAND back in a SOLID base or you could be countered and knocked down or off balance. Phone Post

Here's a very similar knockout hook by Donald Curry:

The key seems to be slipping inside and using the rebound from that to add power to your counter.

Actually here is another very good example of Joe Louis doing it:
