Fastest world title KO

Zolani Tete took just 11 seconds to record the fastest knockout in world championship fight history in Belfast on Saturday night.

The South African etched his name into the record books when he flattened countryman Siboniso Gonya with his first punch to retain his WBO bantamweight crown. Tete floored Gonya with a devastating right hook after just five seconds, and the referee stopped the contest officially just six seconds later when it became clear Gonya was out cold.

It is the fastest knockout in a world championship bout, eclipsing the record held by WBO super bantamweight champion Daniel Jimenez who stopped Harald Geier in 17 seconds in 1994.
