Boxer Dislocates His Shoulder but Finds a Way to Win

SHARE

During the month of October in 2000, the fight between Danny Williams and Mark Potter occurred. In the 6th round, Williams bad dislocates his shoulder to the point of it becoming completely useless. You have to admire the grit for him to not only not scream in pain, but to continue on. He couldn’t even defend himself as Potter threw barrage after barrage, and even clinching him while holding onto his dislocated arm.

As the cornermen, they should have thrown in the towel, because aggravating a damaged shoulder could end someone’s boxing career. All punches require high utilization of the shoulders to not only transfer all the kinetic energy, but also to hold your hands up. Williams continued on to relied on his jab and footwork. They do not call the jab the bread and butter of boxing for no reason.
