On the March 18, 1997, edition of USA's Tuesday Night Fight's, Jimmy Thunder met Crawford Grimsley (20-1)in a scheduled 10 round main event. In the first 1.7 seconds of the first round, Grimsley threw a lazy left and Thunder countered with an overhand right hand that sent Grimsley crashing to the canvas, destroyed. By the time the referee had waved the fight as a knockout the time of the fight had been recorded as 10 seconds in the first round. Thunder's KO victory was viewed as highly impressive, because Crawford "The Terminator" had previously gone the distance against noted power-puncher and all around head buster George Foreman. He is credited with the fastest knock-out ever recorded in a professional fight of any type and certainly the fastest for a boxing event.
