Jerry Hackney will be remembered for the wrong reasons in boxing history. He is considered one of the worst fighters and one bout in particular literally saw him punched out of the ring.
In a match against George Klinesmith, Hackney took so much punishment that he jumped onto the ropes. Klinesmith was in no mood to relent and the ferocity of the punches sent Hackney into the crowd.
Now that’s something you would not expect to see and one can’t recall any similar incidents in the history of the sport.
