14 Shots To The Dome: Boxing's Greatest One-Punch Knockouts

14 Shots To The Dome: Boxing's Greatest One-Punch Knockouts


Man down...man down...man down...lay the FUCK down!

Well, that was quick. In last week's Complex 7 with Ricky Hatton and Manny Pacquiao, perhaps we shoulda asked Ricky: "What's your favorite lullaby?" 'Cause Pac-Man rocked that dude to SLEEP. We would never glory in another man's downfall, but sometimes you gotta appreciate the terrible beauty of a knockout punch.

Poor Ricky is just one of countless fighters who've been on the receiving end of a one-piece (with biscuit). We've seen many boxers get knocked da fuck out!!! through the years but we condensed the list to fit our LL Cool J-inspired headline. Hey, it's what we do.
