Ideally, we want to "drag" this punch - this is the way to get the most out of the shot - notice however, if you are standing directly on top of the opponent, say in a clinch, then dragging the shot may be impossible due to his or her proximity - at that point make it a point to turn your hips into the punch (and maybe even your back leg into the shot) - remember, the palm of your hand is facing inward (towards you) as opposed to facing downward - this punch may be thrown over a lazy jab or at random but know that it is easy to see coming - and it may even stray behind the opponent's head - so be careful.
