Porter chose the best knockout of 2023

Two-time world champion and commentator Shawn Porter determined the best finish of 2023 in boxing.

According to the American, the victory in this category should go to the Japanese Naoe Inoue, who knocked out a Filipino on December 26 in Tokyo Marlon Topales and became the absolute champion in the second bantamweight division.

“I’ll choose Naoya Inoue against Marlon Tapales. Naoya literally forced Tapales down to one knee, then the other, and Marlon's body language showed "I can't go on anymore."

Inoue looked like that against a guy who was fully prepared for this fight, and it left him helpless at the end of the fight,” Porter said in an interview with ProBox TV.
