Default Re: Knockouts that have stayed in your mind

A lot come to mind:

1. Benitez-Hope-Mo was absolutely destroyed by beautiful overhand right. He was out for several minutes.
2. Valdez-Brisco-This used to be on You Tube but I don't think it is anymore. Valdez lands a right hand on the button. Bennie crashes to the floor but gets up barely beating the 10 count. His head is bowed and he weaves slightly, clearly out on his feet. Ref stops fight.
3. Spinks-Marvin Johnson-Similar to the Valdez-Brisco KO. Marvin is caught with a left uppercut. He drops like he's been shot but slowly rises to beat the count. He's out of it and ref stops fight.
4. Palomino-Green-SRL isn't the only fighter to destroy Boy with a left hook. In the 11th round of what had been a grueling slugfest, King Carlos catches Green with a beautiful left hook. Green is out cold for several minutes. Green is also friends with Carlos these days.

yeah kaz, that was one of those perfectly timed punches that was setup with his master footwork. i could watch jersey joe gliding around the ring all day long. so light on his feet for a big guy.

The Spinks-Johnson fight and the LaPorte-Lockridge one, where Rocky was stoned cold out of it.

Hopkins vs Lipsey is one that I never seem to forget....the set up to me is a thing of beauty even moreso than the actual KO, but always ranks high on my list.

That right hand that laid out Duran wasn't even the best Tommy ever threw IMO. To me it was this one against James Shuler. Right between the guard and straight down the pipe. Out of the blue:

Some real fantastic picks here.

My own would be Shavers KO of Ellis. Seeing jimmy trying to get up and shaking in doing so, really stuck in my mind from the first time i saw it as a kid.

Lewis's triple right uppercuts to ****** fortune will always stay with me as i had a great view of it. Still looks pretty good on the screen now, but being there and seeing it, makes it special for me

I believe Green did win a hard fought decision over Price. A classic boxer-puncher bout.

Roy Jones-Art Serwano
Derrick Jefferson-Mo Harris
Jimmy Thunder-Crawford Grimsley

Low profile fights but those knockouts were very memorable.
