    Seriously. He starched Grimsley with literally the first punch thrown in the fight. Watched it live on USA back in the day, it was shocking.

    I remember watching him back in the 90's on USA's Tuesday Night Fights, sorry to hear of his passing. One thing about Jimmy, he wasn't boring and was a fan friendly fighter.

    Rather watch guys really fight like Thunder did and lose a few than watch guys like Wlad and Joshua who are scared to get their glass heads shattered so they fight safety first boring fights unless they can tenderize their opponents enough to feel safe to go for the KO and not get hit back, I rather watch fat guys play golf than watch Joshua run around in circles jabbing his way to a boring azz points victory...

    The author of that wikipedia article seemingly hasnt watched the actual ko. The referee actually carries on counting despite the guy being knocked out. The two williams ko's on the video have the referee wave off the contest earlier than the Thunder fight.
