How the heck do I get the knockout knocked out?

I am adding a subpanel to my barn. After reading on here, I have decided to do it myself. My last question is how in the world do I get the 1.5" knockout out of the back of the main panel? I have tried to be gentle but can't seem to get it started...I about to the point of just drilling a 1.5" hole with a holesaw...

There has to be a trick. .The box is flush mounted and covered by drywall and the back side butts up against the exterior sheathing so there is no room to knock it straight out the back

For future information, a 1.5" knockout is almost 2" in diameter. Measure the OD of your conduit before selecting a holesaw.
