Boxer Tries To Celebrate Knockdown, Fails Miserably

Jordan “The Terror” Tai improved his career professional record to 8-1 with a first-round knockout of “Smokin’” Joe Blackbourn Saturday in South Auckland, but made a fool of himself after the super middleweight’s attempt at celebrating an early knockdown resulted in the boxer taking an L against the ropes.

The best part of this, of course, is that Tai was celebrating a knockout that didn’t happen; Blackbourn foolishly decided to beat the count and take some more punishment before finally being dispatched. (It was Blackbourn’s first professional loss.)
