    Well, military estimates 56 foot pounds of energy to be fatal to average human, that is one hefty punch coming from weight or skill. possible though.

    A few target points such impact could cause fatality, Broken sternum, rib puncturing a vital, nasal bridge puncturing the brain. Head weak spot is the temple, the brain not supported to take such lateral impact. An upper cervical blow severing the spinal column.

    Takes 8 foot pounds to break a collar bone.

    Allow me to answer your "one punch" question with a legal consideration. There's a legal principle in the United States called the "Eggshell Skull" rule - (For all you know, the guy you hit had a skull as fragile as an egg shell). This means that in civil cases (torts) that a defendant is liable for a plaintiff's unforeseeable and uncommon reactions to the defendant's negligent or intentional act. The "Eggshell Skull" rule makes the violator responsible for whatever happens regardless of whether or not they knew that "one punch" could kill the person who they struck. In any case, you better be acting in "self-defense" if you kill someone with one punch.

    There have been a lot of people killed in "one punch" attacks. Often it's a result of the victim hitting their head when they fall.

    The human body is durable as hell, but at the same time stupidly fragile. A punch the chest could stop the heart, a punch to the throat could stop breathing, a punch to the back down dislocate the spine, a punch to the nose could impale the brain, a punch to the temple could disrupt the brain... and so on.

    Side of the temple (pterion)

    Weakest part of the head, that's where one would punch if one wanted to kill someone and a punch in that area can be fatal.
