Right now boxing appears to have a generation of fighters who want to be fast tracked to the top with the likes of Kosei Tanaka and Naoya Inoue both being moved at an insane speed. The daddy of being fast tracked to a world title is however Thailand's heavy handed Saensak Muangsurin, a former Muay Thai great who won a world title in just his third professional bout.
Here we have Musangsurin's debut as he took on Filipino fighter Rudy Barro. The performance was a somewhat crude one by Muangsurin however it was and in such a fashion that he just announced himself on to professional boxing. The finish, a 1-punch KO from hell, is often forgotten as one of the greatest KO's of all time but it really was a staggering shot that appeared to come out of nowhere their added to the reputation Muangsurin had had in Muay Thai as a serious puncher.
Less than a year later Muangsurin had won the WBC Light Welterweight title, in what was just his third professional boxing bout.
