At a boxing gym in Italy earlier this year, one plucky young upstart thought he would challenge an elderly man in tracksuit bottoms to a fight.
He clearly didn’t think much of his competitor, swaying around with all the cocksure moxy of someone confident in victory and smirking to the camera, smiling and vowing to ‘take it easy’ whilst schooling an old timer who needs taking down a peg or two.
But what this fighter didn’t know, is that this old man would be taking his temporary return to the ring very seriously, and boy, was he mad!
And pretty soon after the (weirdly long) bell rang, things escalated pretty quickly as the old man threw a garage of hefty blows. Suddenly realising that he was in a serious fight now, the younger fighter retreated until his man-bun was knocked out with two devastating rounds to the face.
