What are some of the best counterpunches ever thrown?
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
This is one of my favorites. Holyfield vs Douglas
Also my choice. I was just about to call this one!
That's textbook stuff, Buster was too enamored of his long range uppercut and throwing it without any setup is inviting counters.
Certainly not the best, but I loved Ruddocks look in this one
Gaby Canizales v Miguel Lora at 1:24 of this vid
Some of Eubank’s were second to none.

Lewis's left hook (starts around 4:30)
Mike McCallum vs. Donald Curry.
Roy Jones Jr. KO Glen Kelly is an epic one
Left Hook counter from ezzard charles is LEGENDARY!!
The most casual yet brutal knockout I've ever seen
Bodell wasn't great but i love the ko in this.
At 6:47 another nice Quarry counter
1:18 Harold Johnson times a perfect right cross
In terms of pure timing, one of the greatest counter shots I have ever seen was this:
