If you get two counter punchers facing each other the fight can be very slow, if nobody wants to make the first move and are both waiting for the other

Also, a relentless brawler with a tight guard who constantly moves forward and doesn't mind taking a few knocks can be quite demoralising for somebody who wants to box and move and doesn't have a high punch output - watch Brandon Rios' fights, he's pretty unskilled but just wears opponents down who get rattled by his relentless pressure (although I suspect he's going to come unstuck pretty soon when he gets put in with a top quality opponent)

Reality is most people are a combination of styles though

Popkins struggled against the relentless workrate of Calzaghe

Workrate, angles, forcing him to take the lead, etc.

I think an outfighter with good hand/foodspeed setting up good combinations and constantly changing the angle can neutralize the return fire, and eventually force the fighter to come forward and be countered himself. Darting in and out setting traps helps if you have the movement but not the reach. Or, like has been said, a swarmer with a tight guard. Smothering the counterpuncher and applying constant pressure while landing to the body and head without compromising your defensive guard helps. These are more which styles to use. I'd say overall using feints to set up your shots is a good thing to practice for this type of opponent.

If I know someone is more comfortable on their back foot and countering, I make them come to me. That will throw them off tremondously

Feints and staggered rythym. To be honest definiing a counter puncher is a generalisation in a sense. Since they each have their own preferred set of counters. As much as he wants to suss out your style, he also has his own key for lock mechanism that comes with its own limits. Most of the time they are reluctant to make full forward commitment since it is chiefly a defensive style which is constantly watching for consistency / opportunities. With good erratic movement, shoulder shrugs, misleading hand movement, can irritate them enough so that they go into full offense, then the roles become switched.

a fast footed fighter who likes to fight in bursts. Someone who will move move move then stop on a dime drop off 3-4 shots and the go back to moving. Cause basically you have to catch him coming in those few times that he does come in and even if you do he is throwing 3-4 shots so he might sway the judges in his favour anyways.

I think Amir Khan, Jean Pascal... hard fighters for counter-punchers.

Relentless pressure probably the most tried and true method. Fighting in violent effective spurts is another, however this requires certain skill sets/attributes so is a bit harder to do.

A fighter that hits often and doesn't give a shit about getting hit back(and/or has strong defense). A boxer who can disrupt the rhythm and knows up to go for someones "gameplan".
