Manny was a rare case. An actual out cold completely knockout if very very rare and it did happen with Manny. It is not a knock on a boxer, it just happens if they are hit just right. That is why the Manny knockout was so devastating. He was very still. One moment fighting and the next out cold. You don't see that too often. All the other greats like Hearns,Spinks,Duran were not out cold. They were legit knockouts, but the out cold? Just doesn't happen often. Terry Norris vs. Julian Jackson was devastating and Hearns vs. Shuler. I think Shuler might have been out cold for a 30 seconds or a minute.
