When we talk about great Light Welterweights we also have to include Kostya Tszyu, the Australian based Russian puncher who had the division on alert for much of the 1990's and early 00's. One of the most interesting of Tsyzu's bouts was his contest with Diosbelys Hurtado, a bout that featured one of the greatest opening rounds in recent memory. Inside a minute of the bout Hurtado was down, hard, it looked, for a moment like Hurtado was done. As Tszyu went in for the kill he was dropped himself and, before the round was over Tszyu was down for a second time. It was a brilliant round.
Although the fight started at a hectic pace it some how managed to go to round 5 with Tszyu fighting much of it with a badly swollen right eye. The eye didn't prevent Tsyzu from hitting the talented Cuban who took some major body shots before eventually being stopped in a genuinely great fight.
If you've not seen this one before you've really gotta give it a go now.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
