Paul Samuels and Cello Renda share double knockdown that is likened to ‘synchronised boxing’ by Ian Darke

A three-round slugfest with double knockdown that has to be seen to be believed

November 13, 2009; Fenton Manor, Stoke-on-Trent
CELLO RENDA and Paul Samuels became part of British fighting folklore when, on the undercard of Lovemore Ndou-Matthew Hatton, they landed simultaneous left hooks to score simultaneous knockdowns in round two of their eight-rounder. The punches and resulting falls were so in-tune, commentator Ian Darke excitedly announced, ‘This could be a new sport – synchronised boxing!’ Both got up on wobbly legs before Samuels, who also survived a knockdown in the opening round, forced the stoppage in round three.

DID YOU KNOW? Two months later, on another undercard (Rob Norton-David Dolan at Altrincham Leisure Centre), Samuels and Renda went hell for leather again. They shared knockdowns before Samuels got the nod on points.

WATCH OUT FOR: Besides the obvious double knockdown (which, whether you’ve seen it before or not, you’ll find yourself watching over and over again), a special mention must go to the glorious hairstyle of Paul Samuels. Rarely has a man appeared so proud of a receding hairline.
