This is just brutal.

Hot on the heels of some very detailed action from UFC Fight Night 26, this boxing KO is even more unsettling.

The man on the receiving end is Giovanni Lorenzo and this is how his fight against Danny Jacobs ended in the third round last night.

The man throwing the punch was Daniel Jacobs. The middleweight was fighting only his fourth bout since recovering from a cancerous tumour on his spine and the win leaves him with a 26-1 record, with 23 KOs.

With punching power like that, no wonder he has a very high KO percentage.
