VIDEO: KO Of The Year Candidate – Bracero Launches Nuclear Missile Right Hand On O’Connor
Last night proved to be an action filled night Stateside in the latest installment of Premier Boxing Champions, with the Gabriel Bracero vs Danny O’Connor welterweight fight producing a sensational knock out in the very first round in Massachusetts, USA.
Going into the fight, local southpaw O’Connor came into the bout as a favorite – but New Yorker Bracero clearly had other plans.
Incredibly, just 41 seconds into the very first found, O’Connor lunged in with a straight left with his feet out of position, to allow Bracero to counter launch what can only be described as a type of nuclear misile right hand over the top, exploding square on the chin of O’Connor – leaving no need for a count from the referee.
That’s all she wrote, as they say. Straight away, many pointed to the punch being a potential knockout of the year contender for 2015.
Bracero was not particularly known for his power going into the fight (now moves to 24-2, 5KO), but the perfect timing of what occurred last night acted as a savage reminder that one punch can end it all in the squared circle, in the blink of an eye.
Here’s the punch that was heard all around the world:
