Re: Is it possible to get KTFO while wearing headgear against 16oz gloves?
It has to be possible. The first knock down I ever saw in person was a girl getting dropped in sparring ( by another girl). It looked a bit like the second time Ali went down in the first Fraizer fight, except it came from a solid right hand to the chin. Peolple immediately went to help her get up, and she wasn't terribly buzzed, but I'm not sure if she would have gotten up quickly (mainly due to fatigue, and she wasn't very athletic).
I'm thinking the perfect shot could still knock someone out with 16oz gloves. I've also seen a few people call for a break or take knee if they're buzzed in sparring.
