This kind of blow will upset a fighters balance, but is not the kind of detail that you would be likely to work into a staged scenario.
Why did Johnsons left leg fold in before the punch was landed though, and why when he initially saw the punch coming he instinctively backed away abit and then seemed to realise and stop and fold his left leg in and fall, the way he fell too he puts his left arm around Ketchels back and when he lands on the canvas his left hand perfectly lands on the canvas balancing him, and then once his hand perfectly lands on the canvas to balance him a second later his legs can barely push him up and he seems very dazed and then lands a hard punch and knocks him out, seems abit too far fetched to me
