The start of round four was controlled by Graham, and numerous heavy shots had Jackson in trouble. Graham went in for the KO with Jackson against the ropes in a corner. Jackson swung a counter right hook bomb over a lazy left to the chin of Graham in the midst of getting pummeled. Graham was out cold before he hit the canvas, and remained out on the canvas for some time.
