Watson should have sensed something was wrong as soon as the second round started. He goes out touch gloves and Buakaw doesn’t, instead he punches him in the face. Buakaw then turns up the intensity and it is very clear he is no longer playing.
Watson has no option but to try and fight back, despite his efforts Buakaw starts to pour it on. A big right hurts Waston and in a regular fight the referee would have likely stepped in and gave him a count as he was clearly hurt. With this being an exhibition that can’t happen so the fight continues and Buakaw hurts Watson again. This time backs away to let him recover before he continues his onslaught. A left from Buakaw finally levels Watson and it is over.
Man talk about thinking you are going to have someone fun with a legend and instead he ends up knocking you out. I guess to some that might be an even better memory.
Check out the video of Buakaw taking this exhibition match way too seriously and knocking out his opponent.
