Who scored the more devastating knockout?
Top ONE Championship lightwieght contenders Honorio 'The Rock' Banario of Team Lakay and Singaporean Amir Khan are on a collision course at ONE: Beyond the Horizon this coming September 8th in Shanghai, China.
Before their paths were set to cross however, these two hard-hitting strikers have faced a few common opponents, and on of them is Czech fighter Jaroslav Jartim.
Unfortunately for Jartim, the end results of his bouts with Banario and Jartim were the same.
How? Check it out below:
The fourth win of his impressive five-bout winning streak, Banario faced Jartim at ONE: Kings of Destiny in Manila back in April. 'The Rock' put Jartim away with a scintillating left hook that rendered the Czech Republic native staring up at the Mall of Asia Arena lights in just the 1:31 mark of the second round.
Here's the full fight for reference:
Things didn't get any better for Jartim, as he went on to face Khan at ONE Championship: Shanghai and was once again on the receiving end of a devastating KO, this time at the 3:46 mark of just the first round.
Here's Khan's demolition of Jartim:
Since then, Jartim has bounced back well by picking up two TKO victories outside ONE Championship.
As for Banario and Khan, the two are set to test each other's chins at the Baoshan Arena in Shanghai. The winner of that highly-anticipated bout will take a step forward into lightweight title contention.
Now the question is: Whose knockout of Jartim was better?
