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.

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

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..
