Top Ten Boxing Knockouts of 2021Best knockouts in boxing for 2021.
Note: Why no Paul KOing Woodley? Because I don’t see it as legit. Of course the knockout in and of itself was legit. However, the “professional boxing match” aspects of it isn’t. It’s a circus show for suckers. Nothing more.
Not only a fight of the year candidate but also knockout of the year. Brutal fight with a brutal knockout. Berchelt came straight in swinging wildly, Valdez took three steps back and unloads a huge counter left hook that sent Berchelt to the canvas face first out cold.
First punch of the round. Hard right hand put Galahad flat on his back and out cold. Galahad was floored right before the end of the previous round. Even though he got up, he was saved by the bell and never recovered between rounds.
Glad to see this one happen. Not a fan of "The Bully" Bektemir Melikuziev. Dude thought he could just come in and use his "bully style" on a crafty, experienced veteran like Rosado. Well Rosado cracked him with a hard right while Melikuziev was doing his typical bully charging his way in. Paid the price. After eating that right from Rosado, he crashed face first and had know idea where he was.
Scary knockout. During an exchange, Smith landed a straight right that had Castillo stiffened up before he hit the canvas, then preceded to convulse while out on the mat.
Lights Out! Ajagba lands a fast, clean one-two to send Howard twirling to the canvas. Landed all twisted up and out cold.
Didn't expect this. Not saying I thought Algieri was gonna win, I just didn't think he'd be knockout cold the way he was. Straight right down the pipe while Algieri was on the ropes squared with his feet side by side. Algieri was out before he hit the floor as he crumbled face forward.
Fun fight. With "The Big Cheese" Cheeseman against the ropes, Williamson delivered a hard uppercut that rocked Cheeseman and finished it with another hard uppercut that sent Cheeseman crashing down with his leg folded under him.
Lara stunned Warrington with a left hook and during a flurry of punches caught him again with another hard left hook that crashed Warrington to the canvas with the ref immediately waving off the fight.
History making TKO. This knockout made Canelo the first ever undisputed champion in that weight class (Super Middleweight). It started with Canelo battering Plant before sending him down with an uppercut. Plant, with a lot of heart, gets up but his legs are shot. Canelo precedes to flurry and catching him with a right to the temple that floored Plant and ended the fight.
Body shot knockout of the year. Inoue dropped his opponent three times in two rounds with devastating liver shots. The final one had Dasmarinas on the canvas curled up in a fetal position with the ref waving off the fight. I'm telling you guys, having experienced this, I'd rather be punched in the face. I'm serious.
