‘Tis the Season for Devastating One-Punch KO’s? Maybe. Or maybe Frump just doesn’t follow boxing enough. Are these finishes all that common? Either way, if more bouts ended in this fashion — or at least if more people were made aware of it — I have a feeling the sport might mount a comeback.
A lot of commentators are calling this the Knockout of the Year. I’m probably not qualified to disagree, but I thought this one was pretty dang good, too.
If nothing else, the more prominent stage afforded to Martinez vs. Williams II — not to mention the juicy, underlying revenge motif — might elevate Martinez’s 2nd Round KO above that 3rd Rounder from the Asian Games.
Paul Williams being rendered unconscious certainly adds a dash of “BOOM!” as well…
