Randall Bailey KO11 Mike Jones [0:27:57] (USA) When the KO King himself barely makes the top 10 you know this has to be a sick list. This isn't just a brutal, bloody knockout. It's special because it was the last sensational KO the late, great Emanuel Steward ever called for HBO. 09. Jose Castro KO1 Carlos Acevedo [0:59:40] (Puerto Rico) Although only 1 round long I nominate this as the most fun fight of the card. Both fighters were dropped and Acevedo was finished off in highlight reel fashion. A thumping right hook followed by an even better left uppercut put Castro down first but he was soon up and nearly immediately dropped Acevedo with an overhand right. After Acevedo beat the count the two exchanged on fairly even terms until a wide left hook caught Acevedo above and outside of his right eye and took him out for good. Acevedo dropped like a sack of bricks and appeared cross eyed on the canvas. Fortunately he later recovered. 08. Shinsuke Yamanaka KO7 Tomas Rojas [1:03:12] (Japan) WBC open scoring reported 39-37, 39-37 (both for Yamanaka), and 38-38 after 4 rounds which I felt was a fairly accurate account of the fight. Through 4 rounds it was a chess match that was still in the feeling out stages. A few home runs were thrown, but they didn't land clean. This was no longer true for either fighter in round 5 although both still took the punches well. And that was no longer true for Rojas in the 6th when Yamanaka buckled his knees with a straight left. It took Yamanaka less than a minute to finish the job in round 7 as he stunned Rojas again with something between a straight and an overhand and terminated him with something between an overhand and a hook. 07. Adonis Stevenson KO1 Jesus Gonzales [0:05:16] (Canada) This KO is special in that Emanuel Steward worked Stevenson's corner. You may not be able to spot Steward in the short video clip above but you will surely find him in the longer video at the beginning of the article. 06. Anthony Prescott KO2 DeAndre Phillips [0:38:51] (USA) The opening round of the evening was contested between two prospects making their pro debuts. Action moved at slow pace and both fighters looked relatively dry. Phillips appeared very gun shy and was on the defensive for most of the round. Prescott pressed the action and found a home for his over hand right. The same punch would stagger Phillips against the ropes in round 2, where he was knocked out cold by a follow up right hand. Prescott might have needed the last right hand to get the KO, but Phillips was on his way down regardless before it landed.
