What are some of the best comebacks of all-time? By comebacks I’m saying you think the fight is over OR someone who is not a fight fan is saying “how horrible, they should stop this. How can you watch this?” And then, the fight changes:

Two fights come to mind. David Haye beating Carl Thompson easily in the early going and get’s KOed in the 5th.

And Arturo Gatti is getting killed by Wilson Rodriquez and comes back and KOs Rodriguez.

Ebo Elder vs. Courtney Burton, check it out. Face all F.-up, eyes shut, Elder KO's Burton in the last round. No Chavez-Taylor bull****, a "REAL" knockout!

Just saw the David Izon-Derrick Jefferson fight. I wrote some notes while watching the fight.

I like this fight. Never saw it before but I must say it doesn’t quite make my “comeback” list. At no point did I think that Izon was about to go nor was he clearly outclassed by Jefferson. I have a clear shut-out for Jefferson but in each round Izon has his moments: good body shots; a hard hook landing flush.
[written at the end of the 5th round]

Wow. AND THEN came the 7th round. The fight definitely could have been stopped.
Great ending: Jefferson too exhausted to continue; just like Klitschko-Brewster.

Although he wasn't taking a bad beating,Tua was decisively outboxed quite a number of times only to end up knocking out his opponents.

Yeah one of those times was against Oleg Maskaev. Maskaev was hitting Tua with these pitty-pat punches as if he was still in the amateurs and then Tua finally caught up with him and knocked him out.

Basically what you see for the 2mins + of this round happened in the 8 previous rounds.

Micky Ward-Alfonso Sanchez.

Ward hardly threw a punch for the first 6 rounds and had been knocked down in the 5th, the HBO guys talked about how pointless it was to let it continue, and that it should be stopped, and then suddenly Ward unleashed a hook to the body that put his opponent down for the count.

Ray Mercer-Francesco Damiani is definitely one of the most unusual come-from-behind knockouts. Mercer is behind on the cards and throws an uppercut. It doesn't even really land clean, it just happens to catch Damiani on the tip of the nose, breaking it. Damiani goes down on a delay reaction and doesn't get up. Mercer stays undefeated.

Leonard Hearns I?
Hearns winning a comfortable decision and Leonard wins by TKO in the 14th round.

Fight-wise, all the one's I can think of have been said, but what about Barrera after the two losses to Jones? He went on to have the most exciting career of any fighter I've ever seen. That's as great a comeback as I can think of...

Bute-Andrade I

If everything was legit, it would have been stopped. Bute was holding himself up with the ropes and his eyes were glossy, he fit all the criteria for when a ref should stop the fight when he got up from the KD.

It honestly should've been one of the best comebacks ever in boxing.... **** Marlon Wright.
