    When I saw the initial replay during the broadcast I could not believe it. Chin of the ages.

    Simple Philip was moving back and didn't have his feet firmly planted on the ground so it took a lot of power off. It was mostly an arm punch. If he was firmly planted that would have looked like a "bus driver uppercut".

    Boetsch is tough, sucks he went out the way he did but the guy has a ton of heart.

    good chin and Costa was moving backwards, might not have had a heap of steam behind it..

    Mike had power to spare in his prime if he never did that jail bid he most likely would have stayed undefeated.

    I can only imagine that Costa didn't have time to plant properly and was still moving back so the power generated was less than it would have been.

    Tyson is moving backwards on his gif, but Tyson wasn't human.
