Full Version: KOs that went too far...

What are the worst KOs you have ever seen? I don't mean the most spectacular...but those that potentially caused a serious damage to the body....snapped necks, loose heads, twisted torsos...

I have two candidates....

Tommy Morrison vs Merciless Ray Mercer

David Tua vs John Ruiz


In case you need to refresh your memory...here is a 2 hour compilation..

The first one that comes to mind Mercer vs. Morrison. I saw that on TV live. Ray punished Tommy like he owed him some money or smacked his mama!

As of the past few years, I would say that Juanma got some of the worst beatings that should've been stopped. The first one that comes to mind is the Mtagwa fight...that should've been stopped earlier.

Anyhow, a couple of Javier Fortuna's fights may have seriously hurt his opponents because it was stopped late. His FNFs bout with Yuandale Evans comes to mind first. That dude got caught with a hook and his whole body twisted like somebody was ringing out a wet mop.

No way the ref should've allowed that dude to get up, JUST to get dropped in even worse fashion before the immediate stoppage. Fortuna's recent KO over Zamudio was brutal as well...no way he should've been allowed to get up and take further punishment in the first and only round of that bout. Dude was on the canvas for almost 10 mins. no2.gif

Timothy Bradley's recent fight. This man is going to have brain damage soon.

Yes, as soon as I read the topic that popped into my mind. Although I couldn't stand the hype they were raining upon TM and I enjoyed seeing him getting blasted out like that I remember thinking that the Ref should've stopped it a long time ago.

Mercer vs Morrison of course was wicked. Donaire vs Montiel looked crazy for a split second.

This is still the craziest knockout I've ever seen though. Simon Brown vs Vincent Pettway

totally agree.

Gatti vs. Gamache. Any fight where the fighter that gets knocked out sues and his WIFE also sues for the pain and suffering of watching her man get knocked out has to take the cake.

mrchitown
Juanma and the way Salido tore him up twice immediately comes to mind

I have recently read an article about the phenomenon when boxers still appear to box having their hands up after being KOd flat. It is a sign of severe brain trauma and it can potentially threaten ones life. This KO is definitelly up there on the Worst KO Scale...

These two were just terrible...especially the Zamudio one...total missmatch...Zamudio was thin like a paper....got crushed as one as well...

It didnt result in a KO but if you want to see two fighters give each other brain damage then Lamon Brewster vs Sergei Liakhovich is the fight to see. It's not often you see heavies blasting each other like bantom weights. To me, without a doubt, one of the more exciting fights in recent memory.

listening to merchant and lampley go on about the 15lbs is ridiculous. that had nothing to do with weight and everything to do with lack of skill on gamache's part. i felt bad for him...but he didn't belong in the ring with gatti.

The pac one was bad not because of the ko, even tho it was a nasty ko, but the scene around it was crazy.

Mike tyson had some very nasty ko's. Montiel comes to mind, he was still throwing punches when he was on the ground. I have no idea how he got up after that, there was another on fnf where the guy was still trying to fight with the ref after being ko'd. And Erik morales got it pretty nasty in the second Garcia fight

are you talking about pac/hatton?

that was bad because of the force rehydration limit they put hatton.

Montiel : That was one of the best left hooks I have ever seen if you mean that Donaire's KO of Fernando. I am still unsure how could he possibly stand up from that...major will! too bad he didn't even know he got up and where he is in the first place....what a left hoook !

"OOOOH! RIGHT HAND PUTS RAHMAN ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NEXT TO ME, RIGHT NEXT TO ME, RIGHT NEXT TO ME, RIGHT NEXT TO ME!" lol u gotta love Jim lampley and Larry merchant sound bites.

Most recent that I can recall are PAC vs. Hatton (although that was one shot and out) and Donaire vs Montiel. In the past, Foreman vs. Frazier 1 and Mercer vs. Morrison was pretty brutal

no I was talking about pacs last fight. It seemed like no one knew what to do his wife was going crazy knocks got in a fight with a reporter buboy was everywhere, it was chaos.

How could I forget Ricky. That guy does not know how to take a ko/kd gracefully lol, the first kd in the mayweather fight was comedy too.

it's a hard thing to see someone close to you get ktfo. in manny's situation....there were quite a few ppl crying because they didn't believe that was possible. that's something that will stay with them....and buboy in particular being part of his team will harbor that nervous energy. it's not a good thing to have in camp. hopefully these guys will be watching him very carefully. it's rare when fighters come back from ko's like that. i know it's how he makes his living...but without good health...the money means nothing.
