The primary seven are light-weight, beginning with Dean Risher, a 25-year-old southpaw who has been knockout out eight instances within the first spherical of 9 losses.
Risher barely makes it previous the primary minute in most of his contests. When he does, it all the time finally ends up badly anyway.
‘Mr. Ridicuolous’ does have one win to his title, that too got here paradoxically by way of a first-round knockout.
So, let’s take a look at the remainder of the fighters in competition for possessing probably the most eyebrow-raising document in the USA.
We’ve to begin with probably the most high-profile in Emanuel Williams. The 22-year-old is notorious for making his debut on a Prime Rank on the age of 20.
Williams induced a stir on account of his apparent lack of boxing expertise and data. Going through harmful Texan John Rincon on the Maurice Hooker vs. Alex Saucedo invoice may have completed up quite a bit worse for Williams.
Rincon took simply 84 seconds to get the job performed as Williams flailed across the ring like lower than an novice.
Amazingly, after receiving a month’s suspension from the Oklahoma Fee for his efficiency on the Chesapeake Vitality Area, Williams was again within the ring the next July.
With eyes on him on account of his earlier efforts, it was hoped Williams might need spent the final six months firmly honing his craft.
Not so, Williams was once more taken out inside two minutes. By this time, you’d have thought the message would have been clear relating to his profession path.
Once more, the Louisiana man didn’t take the trace. He returned in November 2019 and was stopped in 74 seconds. Twelve days after one other obligatory suspension expired, Williams got here again to lose in simply 50 seconds.
4 fights, 4 first-round knockout losses, and fewer than 5 minutes contained in the ropes. You must reward Williams for his bravery, on the very least.
The continued pandemic has put the brakes on Williams’ profession in the meanwhile. Let’s hope he’s brushed up these expertise or, on the very least, thought of a career-change by now.
Subsequent up are Virginia’s Tyshae Ferguson and Louisiana’s Alvin Brown. The pair have comparable information at 0-10.
Ferguson has been stopped seven instances and Brown eight as they have been mere fodder for the younger up and coming contenders.

We’ve to complete the 135 pounders with a particular point out for Brian Raglin. At 0-18, Raglin has a substantial case to be boasting the worst compilation of all.
Ten first-round KO’s are added to eight bouts that went to the second or third to make for stunning studying on Raglin’s half.
Fortunately, Raglin hasn’t fought since February.
At welterweight, Anthony Woods is a standout title within the getting KO’d division. Of his 32 bouts, one solitary win is accompanied by 21 reverses earlier than the ultimate bell.
What makes that victory all of the extra telling is that it got here in opposition to none aside from Brian Raglin, who had moved up two weight divisions to as soon as once more get halted.
Additionally at 147, spare a thought for Theo Desjardin. ‘The Unholy Terror’ has misplaced twelve from twelve, all however one within the first session.
One weight class increased and Rick Ogden holds an identical mark. 0-10 with simply two bouts going previous the primary three minutes.

At light-heavyweight, Steve Chesnik has had a troublesome time of it. Chesnik has gone into the second twice and third as soon as by way of his excellent document.
Twelve bouts and twelve losses inform the story for poor Steve.
And at last, we couldn’t end off with out naming a heavyweight. Step ahead Marvin Hunt, who turns 50 subsequent month.
Marvin misplaced in two rounds to Terrell Woods final October as his document dropped to 14-44-1. The Woods loss was knockout quantity 41 of these 44 defeats, which may’t be good for any high division campaigner.
Throughout a profession spanning twenty years, Hunt has misplaced 26 instances earlier than the bell has rung for a mid-round interval.
Many a high division also-ran can declare a overcome Tennessee veteran nicknamed ‘Marvelous’ Marvin.
