The Ring began the KO of the Year award with Michael Nunn‘s shocking first-round knockout of fellow middleweight standout Sumbu Kalambay, who had held the Ring/WBA championship prior to their March 1989 showdown for Nunn’s IBF strap.

This year’s nominees are:

Super middleweight contender Christian Mbilli‘s fifth-round KO of veteran Nadjib Mohammedi



WBA featherweight titleholder Leigh Wood‘s dramatic final-round KO of Irish star Michael Conlan

Caleb Plant‘s ninth-round left-hook KO of fellow former super middleweight titleholder Anthony Dirrell

Then-IBF junior lightweight titleholder Joe Cordina’s shocking second-round one-hitter-quitter of grizzled Japanese slugger Kenichi Ogawa
