Video: Tyrone Spong wins boxing match by flying faceplant knockout

3 ... 2 ... 1 ... lift off!

Kickboxing phenom Tyrone Spong, who also moonlights as a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter under the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) banner when the opportunity arises, returned to the boxing ring last Friday (April 1, 2016) to trade leather with Lucas Queen in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

It did not end well for Queen, who went stiff as a board -- mid air -- en route to his second straight loss.

Is normal.

"I'm at a stage in my career where I need challenges to motivate me," Spong recently told "These are the things that I like to do. I like fighting. I like challenging myself. I'm just looking forward to building on my legacy as one of the best fight athletes ever."

He's certainly on the right track, now 4-0 with four first-round knockouts.
