common counter punches

Postby sven » Tue Jul 19, 2011 9:21 pm

I often hear fighters talking about certain counters that are used against an opponents punches. For example, slipping a straight right and countering with a left hook or using a right cross against a southpaw. So are there counter punches that are common knowledge to spectators and if so can someone tell me some more and why they are effective.

well you can counter jabs with a cross, specially when you noticed your opponent is slow in resetting his hand after a jab.

This is the 3rd round of a k1 fight. The finishing blow is a common counter to a straight punch. Executed with perfection!

another example of perfectly timed counter by the same guy countering a straight punch, a right step-in jab to be precise.

I always like watching orthodox strikers throw left hooks at the same time

Condit vs Hardy:

Overeem vs Hari

JDS vs Yvel

Simultaneous hooks are nice.. usually the more technical fighter has the advantage here because of how tight the hook stays in to the body..

By contrast.. I believe the actual counter to the hook is an uppercut. A lot of people counter a jab with a straight (orthodox vs orthodox) but if you've got the timing.. I've seen many parry a job and follow with a counter 1-2 (jab to straight right).. if it's a southpaw throwing a jab.. an orthodox fighter will usually use a straight to counter or a left hook over the opponents shoulder..
