British boxing's five biggest knockout punches (1)

Published Add your comment

Carl Froch wrote his name into British boxing folklore on Saturday night with a stunning knockout finish of his super-middleweight rematch with George Groves, delivering a crushing right hand that finally ended the spirited challenger's efforts in front of 80,000 screaming fans at Wembley Stadium.

Froch and Groves had the biggest platform in the sport's history and took full advantage to show their skills and put boxing back on the mainstream sporting agenda in the United Kingdom, although the abiding memory will be a devastating finish dished out by Nottingham's favourite son.

The 36-year-old now has a highlight-reel knockout to match an incredible career featuring 12 consecutive world title fights, where does Saturday's ferocious shot stand among the greatest punches thrown in British boxing history.

Add the Grudge Match element and an occasion fit for the silver screen and the answer is very high, at the very least worthy of consideration in our five memorable punches either thrown or connecting with leading fighters from British shores.

Click ahead to check out the rest of the top five, with the added incentive of a few YouTube highlight reels you need to see thrown in for good measure.
