Fighters Who Folded Like A Lawn Chair The First Time They Faced Adversity
Which fighters were fine bullying on the tomato cans and journeymen that they were matched with, but as soon as the going got tough and the opponenets started hitting back folded like a lawn chair?
The first and obvious choice is Vitali Klitschko.
He knocked out everyone he faced, usually in the early rounds, then came across an elusive and Stellar Chinned Chris Byrd who refused to fold. By the 5th round, Vitali was visibly frustrated, and onwards from this point Byrd walked him down, outlanded him and landed at an incredible 45% rate, compared to Vitali's 23%.
By the 9th round, Vitali was looking for a way out. Never had someone ever stood up to this bully and he didn't know what to do. "It hurst too much" he screamed to his corner, and was happy to get his horrible ordeal over with.
What other examples are there?
