The first thing that came out of my mouth when I watched this knockout was, “He’s dead”. Clearly, he wasn’t dead, but this knockout was a brutality of epic proportions. In a boxing match between Tito Acosta and Abraham Rodriguez, we saw some slick fist work from Acosta that put Rodriguez down.
As is the case with most knockouts, it was a matter of timing and a simple mistake. Rodriguez threw his own left hand and barely dropped his right hand from protecting his chin. Acosta threw a lightning fast left that got through and put Rodriguez down.
Rodriguez never even saw it coming and he was left crosseyed and confused. Impressive stuff by Acosta!
