4 seconds!



From the title of this post you may very well think it was how long I last in bed but thankfully you'd be wrong. Instead it's the total time of Clarence Joseph's (1-0-0-1, 1) boxing debut which took place in February 2011 when Joseph faced Joseph Benjamin (then 4-24-2-2,3).

The bout, which took place at the 200 Peachtree in Atlanta, Georgia may well be the shortest bout known to man. Oddly however neither man won as a clash of heads after just seconds (literally) spelled a very early end to the proceedings with the referee quickly waving the bout off.

Sadly the only footage of the fight that is available is slowed down and part of a conspiracy theory, though it's still worth watching (see below) and is thanks to MrSplitttpersonality.

Since this bout Joseph has fought once scoring a 55 second KO over Eduardo Anduro, whilst Benjamin has scored 7 losses and 3 wins. Coincidentally it was the second successive No Contest for Benjamin who had had a 2nd round No Contest (due to a head clash) with Allen Williams (who was, like Joseph, a debutant).
