Guys get hit, and sometimes the best even go down. In this case, it means nothing about anything. Joe Louis went down too....more than once. Was that any kind of red flag?
I see what you're saying, but I couldn't see Hwang flooring a Starling, McCrory, or Young, if he caught them with the same punch.As far as Louis goes, if he faces the right type of fighter, a Frazier, Foreman, Tyson, or even a Shavers, it becomes a major problem.
