10. GARY STRETCH KO 1 GEORGE COLLINS, GROSVENOR HOUSE HOTEL, LONDON, JANUARY, 1985.
A cause celebre amongst hardcore British boxing fans of the 1980s, Collins was the sensational prodigy from travelling stock, undefeated in 73 amateur bouts when future media darling, Gary Stretch, upset the apple cart in around 70 seconds of the opening round of their NABC final at 67kg.
A firm believer in the futility of crying over spilt milk, promoter Frank Warren signed Collins to a lucrative contract the very next day and a course for professional stardom was plotted. As it turned out, George was unable to fulfil the huge expectations placed on his shoulders as the camera friendly Stretch also surpassed him in the paid ranks
