    I got introduced to being KO'd in my last fight.
    Anyone here think that dropping weight can make a person more susceptible to being ko'd?
    I must have dropped my hands to throw and lights out. I didn't really come back to until I was in the locker room, heard a loud rushing wind sound and finally realized what had happened. Sucks I feel a bit cheated out of a fight. 1st round not even 30 seconds into it. Oh well another one next month...
    Cheers!

    And just think, you will never get those few minutes of your life back....sorry to hear you got clocked that early in a fight, but it happens. Good luck on the next 1.

    cutting weight makes you physically weaker so it is an obvious option that can lead to you being more open for a knockout

    If you dehydrate to cut weight and don't properly rehydrate before your fight, your brain lacks much of it's protective water cushioning that stops you getting easily concussed.

    I always wondered how much time collectivly ive lost due to drinking and blacking out.. lol

    probably not as much as ill lose at the end of my life when my live goes :redface:

    But yeah if you cut too much and dont hydrate as people have said it does take a toll and probably makes you more susceptible to a K.O.

    unless the dropping of weight did not give you sufficient amount of energy to keep your hands up

    I didn't even think about the whole brain lacking water idea, must use as an excuse later, lol!
    Seriously though I must learn to keep the friggin hands up. I have most certainly taken harder shots(at least that left more physical evidence) but not been knocked out before. I have to say that it is great motivation to practice more on the blocking and slipping!
    Thanks all!

    When I read the title of the thread I immediately thought of how I believe a HUGE majority of KO's occur when the person gets tired... and of course, cutting weight in a short period of time without recooping well can cause you to tire early...

    BUT less than 30 secs? wow... It IS possible that the guy you fought was just damn good and figured you out real quick. That's probably more likely. I bet you have a real bad habit that he just found and exploited in no time! Better luck next time.

    Nah, the guy probably just got lucky with a good hit, some days a soft shot will knock you out, and on others you can take vicious shots and shrug them off

    Well I did get hit on the kisser, I don't think he was really that good. I am not great with my hands, he may be a little better, but not by much. I talked with my coach last night, he said we both threw a right at the same time, he had the reach on me, I didn't cover up well, and the rest as they say is history.

    Would I be wrong in guessing you were not in a solid fighter stance. I mean was your chin tucked. Most KOs I have seen was because the guy was standing straight up with his chin not tucked.

    Not at all, it is part of what I saw about my crap stance, dropping hands, shoulder not over chin, chin sticking out. Pretty much a here is my KO point hit me please......
    We'll see if it improves over the next two weeks when i fight again.

    I think you should wait 30 days before you fight again. I dont want to sound like your momma or nothing and I am all for fighting as much as possible but let your brain have a good rest then get back in there.

    When I boxed if you got koed it was auto-matic 30 suspension.

    dude good job for being the man and at least getting out there. it is more than me or many of us will ever end up doing no offense to anyone. so keep ur chin up..just not in the ring. and take it as a learning experience. next time you will be more cautious about that. so props for sure!
