WHAM! BOOM! POW! KABLOOIE! HOTFOOEY!

For those who aren't catching the Golovkin-Adama card right now, it's been an exciting undercard in terms of Hot Boxing Action, and the highlight, apart from The World's Fattest Cruiserweight, has been 23-year-old Filipino Rey Loreto's nasty third round KO of the heavily favorited Nkosinathi Joyi in a junior flyweight bout.

Joyi (24-3, 17 KO) was hurt bad at the end of round two by Loreto (18-13, 10 KO), and may have been saved by the bell that round. It took only about 30 seconds after the rest period for Loreto to find him with the clean overhand left and finish it off in round three, his second big win in a row after beating Pornsawan Porpramook in August 2013.

Could this be in the discussion at the end of 2014 for Knockout of the Year? Do I need nine more words to get this to 150? I DID!
