The Best Knockout of Each Boxing Superstar’s Career

Boxing at Barclays has quieted critics

Therefore, we present the best knockout of each boxing superstars career. Wladimir Klitschko When you’re dealing with a fighter that has literally made a career out of knocking people out (51 wins out of 60) it’s hard to settle on just one. But for Wladimir Klitschko, the one knockout that stands out took place on June 29, 2002 in Atlantic City. On that night, Klitschko met former WBO heavyweight champion and all-around tough-guy “Merciless” Ray Mercer. Mercer, who was 41 at the time, entered the ring with a reputation for being tough as nails, and had never been knocked out in his professional career. That included bouts against the likes of Larry Holmes, Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis. But Klitschko was a different animal.

Next up for Kovalev is a trip to Wales in August, to face undefeated Nathan Cleverly for the WBO title, on the Welshman’s home turf. Cleverly is a skilled fighter, who throws a lot of punches. But I don’t see him having anywhere near enough power to keep the Russian contender at bay. By fall, I expect Kovalev to be wearing a world title around his waist and to be the light heavyweight fighter everybody is interested in seeing fight again. Falling: Tyson Fury Christopher Lee/Getty Images I’ve never believed in Fury as a legitimate heavyweight contender, but I have to admit he has surprised me in the past, particularly last December, when I thought Kevin Johnson would hand him his first loss. For a guy who is nearly seven-feet tall, he moves very well.

And he says hes a stickler for teaching kids the basics of boxing, not brawling. I teach boxing, not fighting, he said. Rose is certified as a Level IV International Boxing Coach.

Boxing debuted on Oct. 20, 2012 at Barclays, and the “I told you so” crowd noted that they saw ticket markdowns and package deals available everywhere in the weeks leading up to opening night. They cited that as proof the endeavor would fail. In fact, audience response has been quite respectable , Yormark said. The first show drew 11,112; the second, on March 9, 2013 drew 12,293; the third, on April 27 , drew 13,048. All the main events and select undercard bouts were televised on Showtime.
