Welcome aboard Gomi. :)

Most fighters will let the KO come naturaly and not go seeking it, id say the way hopkins fought trinidad would be the most effective way, box and punish then when the KO is in sight then go for it.

most world class guys have a stiff chin so the one punch stuff will seldom work in the top tier. When you fight those guys a good strategy is to counter effectively and work the body. If you get a crisp body shot on a guy it will weaken his legs and that's when you throw the bomb.

It's different for everybody, you have to be able to utilyze your atributes,the general rule is to maintain a steady attack in order to create openings ,sometimes in an attacking convination the first three punches are use to create an opening for the fourth which is trown faster and harder rate if the punch connects and the opponent is vicibly affected then you imediatly step up your attack with multiple punches looking to capitalize on the effect and hopefully ko your opponent before he has time to recover ,the thing you have to look out for is not to spend your self if the opponent is covering up good and also not get too wild as to leave your self open for a desperation counter shot ..........to be continued

Only one or two well placed punches are needed to knock a guy out cold. Never sacrifice quality for quantity. The key is timing. You need to watch your opponent's pattern and rythm and throw a haymaker at the right moment.

It depends. For someone like Ali, Leonard, or Holmes, you are much better off just rushing them swinging for the fences. But against someone like Foreman, Marciano, or Hagler, pinpointed, accurate shots and quick flurries are better. Unless of course their hurt, then keep throwing in a controled manner.
