There is something about the knockout that interests everyone regardless of whether or not they are combat sports fans.  There are those that find combat sports brutal, barbaric, violent, and unnecessary but those normally tend to be middle aged soccer moms or older women.  By and large, 16 to 95 year old men across the board love a good knockout.

Believe it or not there is a vast differentiation in knockouts.  For now, we are going to disregard the technical knockout, or TKO, and focus on the good old-fashioned KO.  This is the type of knockout where a person literally goes unconscious and there is a period of time in which they have lost; meaning there is no recollection of that moment and his body completely shut off.  These last from milliseconds to minutes and can be as brutal as they are subtle.

There is the infamous “sweet spot” where the punch lands perfectly and, although it doesn’t look like much of a hit, knocks a man unconscious.  Then there are those knockouts where a person, in its simplest verbiage, just gets hit really hard.  These normally occur when the person is tired or has dropped his guard and the power shot from his opponent lands flush and the gentleman drops like a rock.



Then there is a unique, rare, and extraordinary knockout that few men have ever seen.  I must warn you that once you see this knockout, you cannot un-see it.  This is a knockout of the most inconceivable sort and one that you are lucky if you get to witness.  So check out the video below for the FACE of DEATH KO.
