Julio Cesar Chavez's Jump-Punch: GIF Spotlight

"He jumped in with the right hand. He was in the air, as a matter of fact."
~Sugar Ray Leonard, commentating for the match.

On the seventh day of the seventh month of 1985, Julio Cesar Chavez quickly took care of Roger Mayweather, defending his major Super Featherweight title. Largely responsible for the victory was this flying right hand knockdown, which somehow managed to be both clumsy and graceful (and unofficial). This is going for it. Not long after, Referee Richard Steele would choose not to count another knockdown as well, but by the end of this round, he'd choose to call the fight regardless. Uncle Roger just didn't have his legs under him. And there wasn't a lot of leg there at the beginning!
