This week we are in the boxing ring for the KO of the Week.
If you missed the Frampton vs. Santa Cruz 2 fight card, you missed out. Most notably the knockout that occurred in the co-main event between Mikey Garcia (@mikeygarcia) and Dejan Zlaticanin (@DinamitDejan1). You had two undefeated fighters and you knew someone was going to lose their perfect record, but many didn’t think it would happen how it did.
It was a set of three punches from Garcia that landed perfectly and put Zlaticanin down. It was actually quite scary once he went down because it seemed for a second that the stretcher would have to be brought in. Luckily he was able to walk out under his own power.
Garcia has scored 30 of his 36 wins by knockout, but to knockout another highly touted fighter like Zlaticanin was big. In addition to the knockout he also won the WBC lightweight championship.
Check out the spectacular KO below.
