Super Slow Motion Even Makes a Guy Getting Pummeled Look Glorious

This is boxer Giovanni Lorenzo. He's having a very bad moment. But if you think the GIF of this knockout punch is good, wait until you see what it looks like below, in aggressively slow motion.

Honestly, the worst part might be waiting for impact.

Watch Giovanni Lorenzo's Face Get Rearranged In Extreme Slow Motion

Danny Jacobs claimed victory over Giovanni Lorenzo in last night's live Fox Sports 1 middleweight bout, but it's the manner in which he did it that really caught our eye: a brutal third-round knockout that left Lorenzo looking like the victim of botched cosmetic surgery.

We immediately knew it was ripe for the Deadspin Video treatment, and who better to serenade you than The Mountain Goats? After all, they're fronted by the indie world's biggest fan of the Sweet Science, John Darnielle, and this track in particular (from 2005's The Sunset Tree) is an especially good match.

This is a Deadspin Video, in which strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. This video features "Hast Thou Considered The Tetrapod" by The Mountain Goats. See previous episodes here.
