Boxing misfit goes viral

A video has recently gone viral on social media in which viewers see a boxer rolling on the floor, screaming out loud in what seems like unbearable pain. Two boxers, one in a blue singlet and the other in a black face-off before the referee starts the fight.

While the referee is still busy talking to other officials, the pair come to a point where the one in black subtly bumps his forehead against that of the one wearing blue. Following this, the boxer dressed in the blue underpants intentionally falls to the ground and lets out a handful of painful cries.

Fans who reacted to the clip

Several fans on social media reacted to the clip. Here are some reactions that stand out and are therefore worth mentioning.

A named user Fouad Fredericks commented, “Well, the guy in black should be disqualified.”
