Boxing is even less accurate representation of real life than movies. In fact, everything possible is done to prolong the match. Boxers are both trained and equipped to stay conscious as long as possible. Because sport is a show, and longer shows can be priced higher. On the other hand, movies are like playing roulete with remote-controlled dices. For the ...

I'm gonna have to go against the grain here. As someone who has trained boxing for years, no, it's not even close. It is extremely hard to do in real life, and people don't stay down more than a few seconds. In my entire boxing "career", I've taken thousands of blows, and I've never lost consciousness. I've hit other people thousands of times, and only like ...

Yes it is and there are multiple evidence of that on youtube, like these: , ...

Yes. Source: Personal experience. A relative was extremely irate with myself, and had been throwing punches at me for about 20 minutes. I had finally had enough and jabbed his bottom jaw towards the front. (If you feel on your own jaw, and you are not too overweight you should feel an area somewhat less padded, and sensitive than the rest.) He dropped, and ...

Easy vs. Possible. Is it possible. Yes. Even with relatively minimal training it is a fairly simple matter to teach someone to transfer enough energy through a strike to cause unconsciousness. Is it easy? No. Transferring that much energy requires, among other things, striking through the target. If you watch beginning karate students attempting to break ...

Is it possible? Yes. Have I seen it? Yes. There is one huge bit of information missing from all of these answers; boxers use padded gloves. Now, they have tape underneath to add impact to the punch, but the gloves are padded and a well-trained boxer knows how to protect himself and reduce the impact of the blow. A street fight is bare-knuckles, and ...

There are several issues here in comparing real life to movies. A trained person knows how and where to strike for maximum damage and this person can definitely knock someone out with one blow. It may seem simple but it takes a lot of practice to develop an accurate punch. The average person might know to aim for the temple but not strike there for a many ...

Disclaimer: Violence is stupid and dangerous. A blow to the skull is often fatal. I wouldn't say it's easy, but there are several sweet spots on the skull that, when hit with sufficient force, is almost guaranteed to cause unconsciousness. I would suggest the upper part of the jaw bone or the temple. Both places are connected to the brain stem through ...

It is possible knock someone out with one punch. Searching on Youtube for "One punch knockout" gives you many results (also in boxing). An example. (warning, contains violence and some may be fake.) The spot where someone is hit is important though, but it is definitely possible; whether it is easy depends on how well the person hitting and the person being ...
