But the new set of record for the best knockout is not yet done. In what has been described “from the incredible to the bizarre,” this bizarre fight in India is definitely going to be in the list.
These two fighters in India suffered a knockout, double knockout, at exactly the same time. I know it’s crazy and it’s one of the most bizarre moments, and probably best knockout, you’ll see this year!

In terms of the rules, double knockouts are so rare that most regulating boards have no classification for them, but we can only presume this particular bout was ruled a technical draw.
