Knockout point on the jaw?

How the hell can a boxer hit a pressure pont on the jaw with a boxing glove with a frontal area of (in my case with 16oz gloves)over 18 square inches? The way a boxer knocks someone out is generally by accellerating their skull very quickly. The brain,which is much softer and is only attached at the lower rear end (Colleen would know the medical term) hits the skull and, hey presto, goodnight vienna. No pressure points involved.
