In all seriousness, yes all punches have the potential for predictability, but my right overhand is usually set up with a jab, or double-jab, accompanied by a slip to the left and a left hook to the body.
So of course, it can be countered just like anything else - that's why it's important to a) set it up and b) not over use it.
Don't bother explaining it to Johnstown, he's a fat guy who likes to pretend to be a boxer. And he seems to think every punch has to be thrown on it's own, no way can you feint, time and trick your opponent into expecting something else before throwing the overhand
