Default Witherspoon vs Eklund Knockout (Video)

Christ on a bike, I can see why Mercer said he hit him as hard as anyone ever had. This and the James Broad knockout are frightening.

BORKED

I saw this fight live on USA cable network fights about 20 years ago.. Great one punch KO and one that I have often thought about. Ecklund was no prize beater, but he was definately a big boy who had tangoed with some decent fighters. Spoon was just getting his bearings back after having his career derailed by DK a few years earlier.... The whole side of Ecklund's face looks like it froze up after that shot.

a classic in my book

Great knockout. Tim had a devastating overhand right hand.

Well, he sure opened up a few tomato cans with it.

Not that Eklund was a tomato can.

I haven't seen it in a long time either. But, if I recall, that can opener decked Bruno late too..

I've always gotten a kick out of him nearly killing Gonzalez the bully with about 15 of them.
