Boxer's Body Goes Completely Limp After Being Knocked Out Cold

Knockouts don't come much more brutal than this.

Over the weekend, Nigerian boxer Efe Ajagba produced one of the scariest punches we've seen in a long time which left his opponent face down in the ring unconscious.

And judging by the replays, it looked like he didn't move from that position for quite a while.

Brian Smith's body literally folded in half after copping a devastating right hand to the temple from the undefeated Ajagba.

For Smith, he's just another name on Ajagba's growing list of victims.

But for Ajagba himself, this was arguably the biggest finish of his young career - and if you check out his resume, that's saying something.

With both men exchanging blows early on in the bout, Ajagba finally decided that enough was enough and chose to end the fight in the third round - and in devastating fashion too.

After successfully defending a jab that came in his direction, the 26-year-old launched an attack of his own and threw a deadly one-two combination that landed flush on his rival's chin.

The sheer power of the blow sent poor old Smith crashing to the canvas in a heap as the referee waved over to the medical staff for assistance.

And as if the replays weren't brutal enough, even the sound of the punch was enough to make you squirm in your seat.

"There are things that this sport produces that is like nothing else. The sound of that knockout is on the short list," ESPN's boxing commentator Joe Tessitore said.

But perhaps the most savage part about all this wasn't the knockout itself, it was actually Ajagba's reaction.

Instead of wheeling away in celebration, he simply returned to his corner before casually strolling around the ring as if he was ready to fight again for another 12 rounds.

Scary.

If the heavyweight division hadn't heard of Ajagba prior to this fight, then they'll have certainly heard about him now.

Back in 2018, Curtis Harper famously walked out of the ring and left the arena before his bout against Ajagba even began.

And after this recent knockout, it wouldn't be surprising to see Ajagba's future opponents do exactly the same thing.
