    Outside fighter. Tall, good jab. Plus when I end up inside, I just want to Thai clench and/or Judo throw people.

    This is kinda helping. I'm getting a lot of information, so thanks. I'm just trying to figure out what style would best suit me, although I think I might be jumping the gun a bit.

    Hui, sorry about taking so long to reply. I have about 5-7 hours of class a day, with no access to a computer.

    I find that most people who fancy themselves a "counterpuncher" merely say so because they're generally too tense/afraid to be aggressive. The type of boxer I consider a genuine "counterpuncher" is the kind that incorporates a lot of close range evasion, lots of slipping and rolling. James Tony being a prime example.

    I haven't "owned" my style enough yet to really say that I'm this or that as far as boxing styles go. I feel that you have to be entirely comfortable with the techniques and general flow of fighting before you can really do that.

    I suppose at this point, though, I'm generally an outfighter, using a lot of jabs, left hooks and the occassional straight right.

    No need to apologize. My opinion would be to learn the most orthodox technique you can, and your strenghts will naturally come out. Just focus on the basics, and you'll know what to do.

    I SHOULD be an outfighter, because I have pretty fast hand speed, but I'm not too tall, and my jab isn't lightning, I tend to move in and out depending on who I'm sparring with, if they're big, I'll slip, roll, and jab a lot.

    If they're good at jabbing, really sweet footwork, and are quick, I'll get in on them if I can, and throw that shovel hook I suck at.

    outside movement with looping jabs mixed in with lead left hooks to body and face (the right stays by my chin), lots of feints and switching lefty/righty when my jabbing arm gets tired (can't do much else as a lefty yet). lots of jumping in with stiff jabs/feints and right cross to belly/nose. Lots of forgetting I can't use my feet, and standing squarely, followed by a pummeling.
    I'm an expert at getting beaten up on the inside...lanky.

    Sure. I wasn't necessarily making myself about you in specific, since I had no way to judge by that one sentence statement alone wether you are indeed a counter puncher or not. It was merely a general observation about people who aren't natural strikers. I know I thought of myself as a counter puncher at one point in time, but it was merely because I could never bring myself to make the first move. Hesitation is a pretty big hurdle for a lot of people to get over, and there are some people who mislable their hesitation as a counterpunching strategy.

    Yeah, to hell with counterpunching. Just let your hands fly, drop bombs, and overwhelm them or just block your opponent's punches with your face, Omega-style. It seems to work for me, but I kind of like getting hit. The thing is, sometimes when I get thumped really hard, and keep swinging for the fences, it does seem to psychologically rattle my opponent. The start thinking "This fucker is masochistically insane." Once you've got them thinking that, the fight is already won.

    Of course sometimes you feel and look like **** the next day, but I just try not think about that.

    Actually, I'd really like to learn to counter once I have all the basics down pat. Any sucker off the street can just run at someone, throw some hard shots and block with their jaw. IMO, counterpunching and all that slick footwork and head movement are what make boxing "the sweet science", and it's kind of why I wanted to learn it in the first place.

    Although if you have heavy hands and a good chin, just trying to beat the fool out of someone might work too.
