Re: Breach of contract
The short answer to your question is that anyone can sue anyone for anything at most anytime. The longer answer to your question is that, based upon what you wrote, his claim should be unsuccessful because there is no proof of sale. In regards to countersuing, your claim probably would not be much better than his and I would not generally recommend a countersuit in that situation.
