Correct, to break it down easier by punch, for jabs, weight transfers from back foot to front foot as you launch your punch rotate your wrist, then snap. For straights, the minute you rotate your hips and your back foot turns like squashing a bug, the weight should be transferring to front foot. For hooks and uppercuts, you typically always have the weight on your back foot because you are sitting down on the punch, allowing your legs to generate power, you dont generally transfer weight forward as you will them be off balance and susceptible to being knocked down or countered.
