Backyard boxing brawl ends in devastating fashion
There are not many people that leave the house during the day or at night that intend to get into a street fight. There are some that do but those people are few and far between as the average Joe has no intentions of getting into a physical altercation…EVER.
Even rarer are the life threatening or life changing situations where a person may have to defend themselves because their life is quite literally at risk and to make matters worse the attacker may have a weapon, may have set a trap, or there may even be multiple attackers. In a situation such as this, the ability to adequately and intelligently defend yourself is paramount.
Then there are those instances where one too many people have “seen it on tv” and think they can do what the professionals do. This leads to hours of entertaining YouTube videos such as the one below.
The gentlemen that you see below are not only engaged in a backyard boxing match but there are rules, a timekeeper, a ref, and even proper introductions that include nicknames!
With such apparent professionalism, how could anything possibly go wrong? Well, check out the video below to see what happens when folks with little to no professional training engage in acts that they have undoubtedly seen on tv and proclaimed “Hey Randy, I can kick that guy’s ass and yours too!”
By the way, the little guy apparently came all the way from Puerto Rico!
Neither www.mixedmartialarts.com nor I promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion, however; we wholeheartedly support the advancement of one’s knowledge and ability to protect themselves as well as those around them in situations of peril.
