Play of the day: Phantom uppercut knocks out boxer

It's been a tough week for Nicholas Capes, the Iowa boxer who stepped into the ring against NFL defensive end Ray Edwards and proceeded to take an unforgettable and hilarious dive.

Capes has been indefinitely suspended from boxing in North Dakota, after being thrown into the ring as a last minute replacement, and taking a dive to protect himself from the much larger and more powerful Edwards.

Event promoter Cory Rapacz said Capes was a last-minute replacement for a couple of no-show boxers and didn't realise what he was getting into before he got into the ring with Edwards, a former Vikings defensive end.

The whole scene was pretty embarrassing really, yet very watchable.
