Be careful ordering ringside dinner the next time you’re at a Izu Ogonuh fight (video)

IzuI’ve seen some knockouts in my day but what I saw the other evening, and what you’re about to witness right now, might just take the cake.

I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m a student of the game but I’ve watched my fair share of boxing matches.  If there’s a famous knockout in history, I’ve probably seen it or at least a replay of it.  I’ve seen most if not all of Iron Mike Tyson’s knockouts.  I’ve seen Ali’s Phantom punch of Sonny Liston.  I’ve seen every Rocky movie ever made twenty times over.  I’ve also caught a reasonable amount of UFC and MMA bouts.  And of course, I watch Ronda Rousey highlights whenever they’re available.

What Izu Ogonuh just did to Will Quarrie might top all of the above.

Ogonuh is an up-and-coming Polish heavyweight who recently made a name for himself with just… one… blow.  He’s currently undefeated at 13-0 with ten of those wins coming by knockout.  His latest victim, New Zealander Will Quarrie, will never forget the night he stepped into the ring with him.  He just might not remember the final punch.

In the second round of their heavyweight duel, the six-foot-three Ogonuh was sizing up his opponent.  Quarrie made the mistake of letting his guard down and ker-blam, what you’re about to witness is the best knockout I’ve seen in years.

Prepare yourself.

 
Ogonuh knocked Quarrie out so hard, he sent him into people’s ringside dinner.  Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, he knocked him into next month.  Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, both their momma’s felt it. Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, the NFL suspended him… for two weeks.  Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, he inspired three more Rocky movies. Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, people stopped making Polish jokes. Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, he reinvigorated our faith in boxing.

Ogonuh hit Quarrie so hard, he’s got a new fan: me.

  1. You obviously missed Barrera’s knockout of Pacquiao . The Filipino refused to fight Barrera after the fight and we know his career went downhill really fast in the aftermath. He was out even before he hit the canvas .

  2. Moose, yea, it’s this kind of fight and this kind of fighter that might just bring back interest to the heavyweight division.

    What I wanna know is how long until this guy gets to fight one of the Klitschko brothers.

  3. Al…

    Was that the one where it looks like Pacquiao ran into his opponent’s glove, with his hair shaking all over?

    Yea, I still think this one’s better.

    There’s just something about a heavyweight knockout, man.

  4. Both were good knockouts , but Pacquiao was out before he even hit the canvas. Boxing is in a real sorry state at present . Andre Berto (Winter Haven , Polk County resident) will be the next tomato can Floyd Mayweather gives can of whup @ss to, without a doubt. Berto’s recent record is a real joke.

    Can’t say I’ve been impressed with the Bucs’ training camp and the hype over Jameis Winston ! More of the same as usual from the clueless media within the Tampa Bay area . More optimism than actual dealing with reality .

    Darren Sharper’s lawyers must be really delusional . No doubt they have been watching all of the news surrounding Bill Cosby ? LOL,LOL!!!

    It appears the NHL’s Patrick Kane is now the subject of a police investigation of an alleged sexual assault? When will these athletes actually learn something , never mind the leniency of their hierarchies when it comes to their off the field misconduct ?

    Tophatal ……………..

  5. I had not heard of this guy until now. And now I probably won’t forget him. That was so funny seeing the one person’s dinner being interrupted by a falling fighter. “Waiter, there’s a man in my soup.” I think if I bought a ticket it would be to see the fight and the cuisine would be a lower priority…especially if it had another man’s sweat in it.

  6. I’ll be heading to the Bucs training camp soon enough, Al.

    I don’t think we should be disillusioned enough to think this team will be competitive. They won two games last year and still have no offensive line.

    They’ll win a few games they shouldn’t and lose a few they shouldn’t either.

    Either way, at least there’s a glimmer of hope which is something we haven’t been able to say for a while.
