Boxer playing a prank runs into guy who wants to fight for real

Boxing is of course also known as the 'sweet science' and a big part of boxing as an art form is not only the hitting but also how to not get hit.

Though the level of the boxer in this YouTube video is unclear, as he is not a well-known pro, he does display some solid evasive skills that frustrate most of his 'opponents' in this prank video.

The boxer is donning just headgear while his randomly challenged street opponents are wearing traditional 16 oz boxing gloves and most are trying to take his head off. The boxer is not permitted to hit back it seems but one of the challengers makes it seem otherwise.

The boxer hits the ground around the 1:20 mark of the video with a right hand from a taller opponent but that could have easily been a slip as well.

Though most challengers have a good time with it, a few take it quite seriously and go after the boxer quite hard. A couple of them even fall down from pursuing the boxer so vehemently.

Towards the end of the video, a long-haired gentleman insists on a real fight instead of the playful attack and defend scenario. He ends up getting his wish granted.

The boxer is about as nice as possible as you can be while both outclassing somebody and making a fool of them. He tells the guy repeatedly he doesn't want to fight him yet the guy keeps coming at him. The boxer quite impressively avoids his attacks and knocks him down with kicks all while saying "I don't want to fight you!" Some people just don't get it...

The boxer even hits a cool looking leg sweep on him which is much more of a traditional martial arts technique than it is boxing.

This video, despite being a fun prank, really highlights the defensive skills of boxing and shows how important it is to know how to not get hit.
