I thought this would be a fun topic to start. Basically, I would like to unofficially complete Ring Magazine's list of Knockouts of the Year, which began awarding fighters from 1989 onwards.

Rack your brains trying to think of the most brutal and devastating knockouts you have seen in a fight from that specific year. Any KO pre-1989 is fine by me.

This is the Ring Magazine's list of KO's from 1989-present.



1989: Michael Nunn KO 1 Sumbu Kalambay

1990: Terry Norris KO 1 John Mugabi
1991: no award was given
1992: Morris East KO 11 Akinobu Hiranaka
. . .tie: Kennedy McKinney KO 11 Welcome Ncita

1994: George Foreman KO 10 Michael Moorer
1995: Julio César Vásquez KO 11 Carl Daniels
1996: Wilfredo Vázquez KO 11 Eloy Rojas
1997: Arturo Gatti KO 5 Gabriel Ruelas
1998: Roy Jones Jr. KO 4 Virgil Hill

2010- Klitschko-Chambers

I assumed he was asking for fights that were not selected as KO of the year or that he didn't already list. Of course Martinez -Williams would be my number 1 pick for 2010. As far as brutality, Chambers was as brutally knocked out as any fighter that I happened to see in 2010.
