Default How to throw a check hook

First off, as a naturally right handed southpaw fighter, I LOVE the check hook. So effective against right handed fighters. But I've seen guys throw it with different techniques.

Technique #1 - Floyd Mayweather vs. Ricky Hatton (Pivot Out)

Throwing a hook while your opponent is moving forward leaves you a bit open. With this technique, you pivot out away from potential punches at the same time you throw the hook.

Good = Virtually no chance of getting hit in exchange.
Bad = The hook won't have much power



Technique #2 Nonito Donaire vs. Vic Darchinyan (Block and Counter in Pocket)

This is actually may favorite way although it's more risky. Donaire tucks his chin and body behind his right hand and arm to catch a straight left should it get through, but doing so allows him to plant his feet and get full power on the hook. Particularly useful against opposite handed fighters to protect against straight punch.

Good = Limited chance of getting hit in exchange
Better = Hook will have devastating power



Any other techniques useful with the check hook?
