    I'd say either Ray Mercer's ko over Tommy Morrison or David Tua's over John Ruiz.

    I always think of Johansson vs Machen - which, thanks to horrendous refereeing, became even more brutal than need be!

    Kenny Vice v Jim McDonnell was quite a scary one. You can see why the British authorities banned McDonnell from fighting again afterwards.

    It's impossible to pin it down to one, so I'll just add some additional contenders:

    Sam Peter vs. Jeremy Williams. Half-Man, Half-Amazing, Completely KTFOed.

    Ike Williams vs. Beau Jack

    Rubin Carter vs. Florentino Fernandez gives me nightmares with the way he flops out of the ring

    Roy Jones Jr. vs Art Serweno. I always imagine the old 'dial up' internet logon sound effect playing as Serweno seems to stare God in the eyes.

    JMM vs. Pac IV

    Pac vs. Hatton

    Skip to 5.20. One of my favourites. Perfect left hook.

    Also, I'll always remember Jersey Joe's KO over Charles, and Marciano's KO over Walcott.

    Quarry could well have been dead against Bob Foster.

    Martinez-Williams in their rematch. Williams was out cold, fell face first, and you could very clearly hear the impact of the punch when it landed.

    Pacquiao-Hatton. Immediately knew the fight was over when that punch landed.

    Harold Johnson-Paul Andrews. Perfectly timed right that landed will full force.

    Foreman-Cooney. Casual devastation at the end.

    Gatti-Gamache. Not only brutal punches, but the way Gamache smacked his head on the ground.

    Marciano-Louis speaks for itself.

    What on earth was the incompetent referee doing, taking up the count with Dokes lying down on the canvas like a dead man? He could have counted to 100 and there still wouldn’t be any chance of Dokes waking up by then.

    Jackson knocking out Graham or Berbick doing that walk after Tyson caught him, iconic.
