Default Highest Profile 1 Round KO of the Challenger by the Champ?

Besides Louis/Schmeling II


Consider: the champion's status and what it meant for them.

The ability of the challenger and their status.

It was just too obvious. I was thinking about the runner up.

Tyson/Spinks they were both titlists....BUT Tyson was moreso the challenger in that one, IMO

A left field pick:

Burns/SquiresI

Squires was unbeaten and seemingly, the 'real deal'; Burns the 'faux' champion post Jeffries.

Of course after Louis/SchmelingII, Marciano/WalcottII and Ali/ListonII, there was this match up in 1988 between Tyson and Spinks; if you, unlike me, called Tyson 'champ' going in...

Yeah, mostly Heavyweight territory for this. Was thinking Jones/Griffin II but alas Jones wasn't the champ.

I think most thought Jackson was damaged goods going in, and so it proved.

Th best I can think of, outside Heavyweight at the moment, is Hill/Kinchen...
