    Carlos Quintana - superb counterpuncher. Just ask Paul Williams and Joel Julio.

    Shane Mosley is a pretty good.

    Fast Eddie Chambers is one of the best the HW division.

    Chris Byrd used to be amazing.

    Tarver ain't bad either.

    Some old names:

    Ray Robinson (how did you forget that one, Ice!)
    Floyd Patterson
    Ezzard Charles
    Billy Conn

    Thanks for the Winky mention. But anymore it seems like he isn't a real true counterpuncher, he just uses his defense and waits for a punch barrage to end, then he goes on the offense?

    Id call Winky a pressure fighter, really.. Definetly not a true counter puncher.
