Knockout video: King Craig Vitale knocks out Joe Muir twice before he hits the mat

Hey, you like sanctioned violence, right?! Of course you do. Here's a clip from Australia of what is essentially a double knockout.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Poor Joe Muir was just trying to make his boxing debut on August 2 in Australia, where he faced a prospect named "King" Craig Vitale in a four-round heavyweight fight. The fight made it to round two. That was about it.

Here's the knockout, which is quite fun if you like to watch guys get absolutely flattened. Twice. Before they hit the canvas.

Now, I can't realistically say this is the KO of the Year or anything, because as Roger Mayweather once so brilliantly said, knocking out "a bunch of motherfuckers that don't mean nothing don't mean anything." That's pretty much how I live my life from now on. That's straight wisdom, #boxingfriends. ~inspiration

But I mean, it's pretty cool, this knockout. I also do not know what Craig is King of, so if you were going to ask, I'll just get that out of the way right now. Vitale (4-0, 2 KO) is back in the ring on October 11 against Joe Lloyd (2-5, 2 KO). If he can knock out Lloyd three times before he hits the canvas, we'll follow his career very closely.
