The bottom line is that punching power, like having a good chin to a large extent is natural. So, even when you work on things like foot placement and torque, it can only help so much. Tim Bradley is a perfect example. He is probably one of the most muscular guys in the game right now but cant crack an egg. Another thing to look at is leg power - the power comes from the legs and ability to torque your core.

Its just like hitting power in baseball. You can teach a guy how to hit all you want - you cant necessarily control how the ball jumps of the bat once you made your move.
