I accidentally knocked out a young kid a few years ago. He threw a lazy jab and I warned him that it was lazy a few times. After a while I decided to parry it and throw a very held back right hand over the top. Unfortunately he walked straight into it and collapsed like a sack of shit. I was only just able to catch him. Kid went mad when he regained consciousness but he understood my point when he calmed down
I also put a girl on the canvas with an ultra weak liver punch. Both were accidents, I swear
that kid i sparred.....i dropped him with a left hook....didnt mean to throw it hard..and it really wasnt hard.but it was harder than i wanted because i slipped to my left to avoid a big overhand he was throwing and than i turned the left hook over...the motion of coming around was enough to drop than.
last week though i did nail him in the arm pretty good...made his arm useless for the next 3 days..and i did that on purpose because he kept on hitting me in the balls...and i know he was doing it on purpose.
i had on the heavyduty protectors so i didnt feel the shots..but still..thought i should give him something
