Boxing is a game of hits in which rivals fight and try to beat each other in what are called knock-outs. Sometimes, a personal element of rivalry or a desire to move ahead of the opponent makes fights more dangerous. Some punches are so powerful that they become legend. Such knock-outs have been executed time and again in various boxing matches.
Punches exchanged between Floyd Patterson and Ingemar Johansson– Floyd was an American fighter while Johansson belonged to Europe. They fought against each other in the 1952 Olympics, and their fight became a power-struggle. Reign was in the hands of Johansson when he defeated his rival seven times in the first fight. Johansson took revenge from Floyd in the second fight by knocking him out in the fifth round with a heavy punch.
Roy Jones’ intense punch for Jr. Montell Griffin in 1997– Both of these boxers were debarred in a match that resulted in Roy’s loss of his light heavyweight belt.
