If there’s one punch that ended a career, this is it.
Gerald Fike caught the end of this sledgehammer from Collin Reuter in Fairbanks, Alaska.
A couple of days later, he probably remembered some of it.
But in the time between Fike hitting the canvas and waking up, many thousands of fight fans had watched and OOOOED as he hit the canvas headfirst.
That’s headfirst, ON HIS BACK, because Reuter’s uppercut bent Fike backwards like a human Slinky.
It all happens pretty quickly after they touch gloves. But you’ll be watching it again and again long after:
Also, turn the sound down before you watch it.
Too late? Oh. Sorry.
