Yemeni boxer Ali Raymi (19-0, 19) is a man who has gone from being a total unknown to a man on the verge of breaking a world record. The shaven headed 39 year old, pictured above, isn't just a fighter with a perfect KO record but is a man who has recorded all 19 of those KO's inside a round.
This coming Sunday sees Raymi returning to the ring and hunting his 20th straight KO victory. If Raymi, who faces the unbeaten Akram Jafwi (5-0, 1) on Sunday, can record another opening round stoppage he will be the new holder of the world record currently held by Tyrone Brunson.
For those interested the record is currently listed on the Guinness World Records website here:
