Default Re: More impressive one round beating?

The most impressive one round pounding that I ever saw, was between lightheavyweight prospect Anthony Hembrick vs Booker T. Word. The fight took place in the spring of 1990. Word was a 16-1-1-13 prospect, facing Hembrick who was 14-0-0-10. Hembrick apparently had an impressive amateur career, and was favored to beat word. It happened at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Hembrick, had a big ring entrance with military guards doing an elaborate solute to his announcment. The result, was Word flooring him three times, and utterly destroying Hembrick in a single round.

Pinklon Thomas lost to Mike Hunter via decision, on the same evening.
