  Intro | The Punch

When Hasim Rahman knocked out Lennox Lewis in Carnival City, he did much more than just take the Englishman’s WBC and IBF titles.

He landed a blow which may well be known as the ‘punch of the decade’.

BBC Sport Online’s own pugilist specialist Sanjeev Shetty analyses the right hand which separated Lewis from his titles and senses and says that regardless of his preparations, the former champion would have struggled to recover from such a punch.
