Knocked Himself Out
Back in the early 1930s, C.D. “Bigboy” Blalock of Louisiana State Universitya six-foot-six-inch giant of a boxerwas taking on a stocky fellow from Mississippi State. In the second round, Bigboy let lose a roundhouse. The Mississippi man stepped in, and his head caught Bigboys arm inside the elbow. With the opponents head acting as a lever, Bigboys arm whipped around in almost full circle, connecting with haymaker force on Bigboys own chin. He staggered, grabbed the rope, walked almost all the way around the ring, and then fell flat for the countthe only prizefighter who ever knocked himself out with a right to his own jaw.
