There were a lot of “grown man naps” taken in 2015. This list compiles some of the brutal KOs witnessed over the last 12 months. Here at BeatsBoxingMayhem, we tried to rate them based on three categories — “cleanness” of the punch, level of the opponent KO’d, and the sheer force behind the shot. Enjoy and see if you don’t cringe a few times.

Dennis_Cojanu

 

10. DONOVAN DENNIS KO2 RAZVAN COJANU

Donovan Dennis got a trip to the Boxcino Finals off this counter left that sent Cojanu to dreamland.

DavidPrice_ErkanTeper_knockout

9. ERKAN TEPER KO2 DAVID PRICE

Price was slowly trying to rebuild himself after back to back KO defeats to Tony Thompson in 2013. He strung together four wins before being blasted out in two rounds by Teper. There’s a lot of controversy here since it was discovered five months after the bout that Teper failed a drug test. At press time, the EBU is still upholding the result but vacating the title Teper won.

Breidis_Charr

8. MAIRIS BREIDIS KO5 MANUEL CHARR

With the heavyweights, all it takes is one punch. In this case, it was an uppercut.

Russell_Reyes

7. ANTONIO RUSSELL KO2 HAROLD REYES

Talk about starting your career with a  bang. For his pro debut, Antonio Russell sent Harold Reyes’ brain into another dimension.

Afolabi_Chakhiev

6. OLA AFOLABI KO5 RAKHIM CHAKHIEV

Chakhiev got a bit too wild with his punches and paid dearly for it. The count wasn’t necessary.

Bracero_OConnor

5. GABRIEL BRACERO KO1 DANNY O’CONNOR

Danny was done before he even got started. One punch thrown sloppily and Bracero got him right outta there in round one…

Uchiyama_Chuwatana

4. TAKASHI UCHIYAMA TKO2 JOMTHONG CHUWATANA

Uchiyama’s nickname is “KO Dyaminte.” It’s well-deserved.

**********************************

Rodriguez_Wesby

3. JAVIER RODRIGUEZ KO5 QUINCY WESBY

Coming in, Wesby was on a five-fight losing streak and winless since 2013. You’d think he’d chill on the taunting. He didn’t and appropriately got put to sleep.

Ugonoh_Quarrie

2. IZUAGBE UGONOH KO2 WILL QUARRIE

Canelo Alvarez v James Kirkland

  1. CANELO ALVAREZ KO3 JAMES KIRKLAND

Canelo had been trying to get a Kirkland fight for years. Why? The Mandingo Warrior represented the perfect style matchup. A come forward fighter with suspect defense but loves to trade punches. Canelo had a field day right down to the final shot that made Kirkland do a 180.
