I don't know who it was, but some guy who hit his opponent and made him do a backwards somersault or something with the force of the punch.
I think burt bienstock saw it.


Also, I guess Dempsey-Fulton for the sheer speed of the KO, in such a big fight.

Louis-Uzcudun.
Liston-Folley maybe.

I imagine some of Marciano's early KOs were spectacular, albeit not against good enough opposition to be considered wholly great.
Considering he was raw and unpolished to the max in his earliest fights, and getting by somehow only on sheer power, I daresay it made for some amazingly brutal KOs, guys flying through to air etc.

I'd love to see film of the Freddie Steele-Ken Overlin knockout. In over 150 fights, there were only 2 stoppage losses for Overlin- one in his third professional fight against a more experienced fighter in the final seconds, and Freddie absolutely demolishing him in 4.

I would love to see Henry Armstrong's many knockouts. The guy could punch and was like an itch you couldn't get rid of.

Less so, perhaps, is McLarnin's one round stoppage of Young Corbett III. Corbett was never stopped twice in his first five fights, but then wasn't stopped for another 14 years when he faced Jimmy as the reigning WW champion. Corbett was never stopped at WW aside from on this occasion, and was only stopped once afterwards, by great MW Apostolini. I have film of Corbett thrashing Fields, and as well as being rugged and strong, he is awkward, skilled and a puncher. For McLarnin to stop him within a single round...pretty awesome stuff don't you think?

These two are the KO's I would most like to have on film, I think.

What about you guys? What's noteworthy?
i would have loved to see the Ketchel/O'Brien fight in 1909, when the smaller Stanley Ketchel cut and bleeding, connected on the bigger Phil Jack O'Brien
with a powerful right hand that deposited O'Briens head in the rosin box,
dead to the world . The final bell saved O'Brien from a ko. Loved to have seen
the power of the Michigan Assassin...

U,yes I did see Al Davis hit a man heavier than himself Oscar Suggs with a powerful left hook that catapulted Suggs into a backward flip.So powerful was that left-hook. A few fights later Davis an 8-1 underdog kod the great Bob Montgomery with several left hooks at MSG,in the very first round.

Fitzsimmons Versus Ed Dunkhorst (I think that was his name anyway?) The Human Freight Train - 11 and a half stone KO's 22 stone or whatever he was !! That would be a good one to see - I have a bad feeling it may have been a body shot knowing Bob tho (which would be a bummer)

This right here. Is there any film of Jeffries KO'ing Corbett in the rematch?
