Yuri Arbachakovs finishing right hand on Muangchai Kittikasem in their first bout was a great, perfectly timed punch. Kittikasem was getting ready to throw his right hand, but Yuri took a step back and caught him with his own right cross before Kittikasem could throw it and he was out before he hit the canvas. He landed face first on the mat, the referee could have counted to one hundred and iMuangchai would still have been laying face first on the canvas.

There's one that stands out to me.........


Vincent Pettway's KO over Simon Brown. A perfect, vicious left hook that not only put Brown unconscious on the canvas........Brown lay on his back continuing to parry and jab with his left into the empty air, totally unconscious. It was the most surreal, scary thing I ever saw in the ring.

I remember that now. Very scary indeed. I wonder if it's on Youtube somewhere.

Darnell Wilson's recent KO of Emmanuel Nwodo deserves consideration.

That's not one I'm gonna forget in a hurry.

Yes it was spooky...

Tommy Machine Gunn Duke Morrison did a similar thing post Mercer (another awesome KO), but he was up right and was ducking, diving and parrying the punches... Just five minutes too late I guess!

If anything, the hook travelled downwards; there was no upward motion.
