It seems ridiculous that we could declare a man who weighed in at 115 pounds soaking wet to be one of the scariest boxers of all time, but Thai flyweight Khaosai Galaxy was not a guy you wanted to screw with. He came to Western boxing from Muay Thai, and even though he lacked the fundamentals of the sweet science, Galaxy made up for them with the staggering fury of his left hand.
His trademark punch, which translates from the Thai as “the left hand that drills intestines,” left opponents doubled up on the canvas in agonizing pain. He retired with a 49-1 record and 43 of those wins by knockout. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.
