Amateur Boxing KOs Can’t Be Beat
Total Pro Sports – Many people believe that boxing is dead because of the rise of MMA, and while that may be true there will always be those amateurs who continue to keep the sport alive with some highlight reel knockouts of their own. After all, who needs a ring or octagon when you can put on a show in the comfort of your own living room.
These two guys put the gloves on and decided to get a couple of swings in there with their friends watching. They touch gloves and right away the mayhem begins. With their fists swinging wildly, both guys get in some devastating shots before the final blow is landed.
This is without a doubt one of the better amateur boxing matches I have witnessed as there could have been at least two or three knockouts prior to the punch that ended it. It was a great finishing shot, but I am not sure what was more enjoyable to watch; the knockout, or the reaction of those in the room, including the male who delivered it.
One thing about amateur boxing is the ringside doctors tend to be amateurs as well.
