It's simple. If you don't keep your hands up, you're going down.

I had a similar experience while sparring, I let my guard down for a second and my opponent landed a kick right on my chin. One of the best lessons I ever learned lol

His lights were out before he hit the floor. The ref could have counted to 1,000.

When someone new comes into my boxing gym and I'm telling them to keep their hands up, I get tired of hearing "but the pros don't keep them up all the time why do I have to?" I always tell them, "when you have as many fights as any of the guys you're talking about and you're paying my salary you can start putting your hands down sometimes. Until then keep them up." I've been fighting for 21 yrs and I still keep them up as much as I can. It's become a good habit.

The only thing missing was Chris Tucker standing over the guy, shouting "You got KTFO, man!"

I was a quick learner on this.

It took my exactly two full hits to the face to learn to keep my hands up.

I too was a little stubborn when I first started training in Muay Thai. I was doing a bit of focus training and he told me if I put my guard down he'd give me a little pop as a reminder. Over the next few minutes I got a lot of reminders. Now I'm constantly aware of my hand positioning

The guy who got knocked out is Jay R. Palmer. He was a superbrawl champion like 2-3 times. He is or was a TKD practioner and beat a lot of people including BJJ practitioners from BRAZIL. That was possibly a later round KO where both practitioners were completely tired. who knows. But give the guy a little respect.

hahaha great find, ive also noticed that when a lot of people kick they drop their hands. Tisk tisk gotta be more careful, people always think it sok to dropt their hands because the pros do, they also forget that its about round 6 by then and your unbeilivly tired. If you start with your hands down you wont live to see round 2
