thinking about amir khan's loss, has anyone ever come back from a 1st (or early) round knock out to go on to become a legit champ or great? early losses, like their first couple of fights don't count. can anyone think of anyone?

thomas hearns got two peiced by iran barkley and came back to cement his legacy...

roberto duran got ktfo by hearns and came back to have some great wins an show why he was the man...

lil mac took one on the chin against piston hurricane and came back to beat super macho man for the title... made a comeback and beat tyson...

and came back again and had his biggest victory to date... lil macs last fight!!!

Terry Norris got KTFO by Julian Jackson in 2 rounds, and came back to accomplish great things in boxing. Simon Brown also KO'd him(Norris) in there first fight, and Norris beat him handily in the rematch.

That Lil Mac deal is awesome. Too bad Glass Joe is not alive today to see it.

Big Slim Sweet
Wlad-Sanders?
STEVENSKI
Andrew Golota

Came back from brutal Lennox KO1
to
Tyson KO 2
to
Brewster KO 1

What a champion.
BigG
Norris came to mind. He had a suspect chin for sure but he went on to be Champ at 154, giving beatdowns to Leonard, Meldrick Taylor, Donald Curry, etc.
BigG
Anthony Mundine was knocked out by hard punching Sven Ottke early in his career and went on to beat the likes Sam Soliman and Danny Green.
Big Slim Sweet
I think Kassim Ouma was blasted early in his career and came back to win a title.

Roy jones Jr

Got stretched bigtime by Tarver

Manned up & fought Johnson & got stretched again

Lost every real fight he took since.

Oh sorry this was about guys who came back & did something more than have sham PPV's after a brutal KO.

And Meldrick Taylor should never have went up in weight for that fight, plus he was never the same after Chavez.
Though Norris did have some quality wins, just not the ones you mentioned BG.

Also BG, I already mentioned Norris earlier in this thread. Try to be original and think of another fighter on your own. laugh.gif Just messing with you.

Just out of curiosity, when will this thirst for the downfall of Jones be finally quenched?

When he is dead it may die down but I doubt it. He should get a LCD TV put on his tombstone showing a constant highlight loop of his brutal losses.

LOL. Jesus man, are you being serious? What'd he do to make you wish death on him, or anyone for that matter?
STEVENSKI
Man you damm well know what he did to me. He hit me with the chicken punch. I don't know about you but that was pretty damm embarassing when you are picking up trash & people throw rubber chickens at you. It builds resentment up. I'll fight him again but he is too scared to give me a rematch.

STEVENSKI
