    While controversial of the knockout, the phantom punch Ali landed on Listen in their rematch is an absolute beauty of speed from a man over 200 pounds. While I believe the knockout itself was fixed from Liston, the counter Ali threw was the perfect.

    Randall Bailey's uppercut comes to mind.


    James Toney baiting Barkley with a jab then countering with a right hand that violently ejects the mouthpiece out.



    Quite similar to KTFO6

    That's textbook stuff, Buster was too enamored of his long range uppercut and throwing it without any setup is inviting counters.

    Some of Eubank’s were second to none.

    In terms of pure timing, one of the greatest counter shots I have ever seen was this:
