A true “finish him” moment took place at an amateur boxing event when clear badass Ahmad Jones popped his opponent with a loaded up right hand, putting him out on his feet. The heavyweight prospect then landed a brutal and blazing-fast 1-2 to finally send his possibly already unconscious opponent to the mat.
Without hyperbole, this is one of the best knockouts of the year. Sure, Jones’ opponent looked outmatched just by the eye test in this brief clip, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this unicorn of a knockout.
Let’s break it down, for fun:
Jones is jabbing away at his soon-to-be-flattened foe, right hand cocked back and loaded. He’s ready for the opening that was sure to come when his fellow orthodox fighter unleashed a right hand. It was too slow. Jones saw it coming the whole time and blasted him, leaving his opponent to basically stand there, swaying, waiting for the disembodied voice to say “Finish Him!”
As the clickbait headlines say, you won’t believe what happened next.
Like a video game character who has no sympathy for digital brain cells, Jones would end the fight with a brilliant and picture perfect 1-2 that would send his opponent to the mat and fight fans to keyboards and social media.
