First thing you should do is learn to type.
''Cuz wen u wryt liek dis'' people won't take you seriously.
To increase punch strength just ....build...the stronger the muscles, stronger the punches.
Focus on your chest, lats, triceps and delts...cuz those muscles affect the punch power most.
However, your whole body should participate in a punch so workout your whole body.

Learn to punch from your feet. Thats where the power comes from and builds upwards to the fist.

You guys are all forgetting the legs! Where do you think your power comes from when you're punching? Try hanging from a rope and punching and see how hard you can hit. In addition to building everything already said, improve your leg strength and quickness. Also, you may want to work on EXPLODING on every rep."If you want to be world class you must first act world class" -Travis Ortmayer

The best way to increase punch strength as a beginner is to get a heavy bag and beat it up. You will learn proper coordination to throw a punch and that is where you'll see the greatest improvement in your power.
Also big compounds will help with punch strength because they will teach your body how to work together as a whole. So things like bench press, clean and press, overhead squat and others will all increase explosiveness, thereby giving you a stronger punch.
Punching with weights in your hands may not be the best idea, especially if you arent throwing the punches at a bag. It can cause your arm to hyperextend when you stop the weight from going forward.Thewhite9t's training log- http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?p=364921521#post364921521

Punch through the target once your fist makes contact it should either stay the same speed or increase speed this will hurt more than a punch that hits you just fizles away.
that will help, but pick up a book and learn how to punch properly from that.
Also remember that power= strength+ speed
do speed drills this will increase the power of your punch
Try to punch a candle out without touching it.
