Floyd Mayweather's Knockdown, Knockout Left Hook: GIF Spotlight
On the first of February, 1997 as a young Super Featherweight prospect, fighting just inside the Lightweight range, Floyd Mayweather Junior took his fourth fight against Edgar Ayala. Mayweather was responsible for creating an electric television outing as he stalked and rapidly dismantled his opponent, putting him on the back foot quickly and motioning him to come back and fight. Not too many fighters look so confident, polished and deadly, so early in their professional careers. In this GIF, Floyd checks Ayala at the door with a left hook to put him down in the first round, then out in the second round, with a nice replay of the knockout shot from a different angle. It was Ayala's professional debut on ESPN. I don't wish a debut against Floyd Mayweather on anyone.
