In celebration of 30 years of boxing coverage, Showtime has released a highlight reel of what they believe to be the best knockouts that have occurred during that time frame – chock full of straight right hands, uppercuts and left hooks that rendered opponents unconscious.

Featuring handiwork from the likes of Evander Holyfield, Tommy Hearns, Felix Trinidad, Mike Tyson, Wilfredo Vasquez, Shannon Briggs and more, Showtime deemed Vincent Pittway’s 1995 KO of Simon Brown – with the latter laying on the mat at US Air Arena in Landover, Maryland still throwing punches – as the best of the bunch.
