Consider Tyson Fury a fan of Julius Francis after his latest knockout.
A former boxing partner of Tyson, Francis once competed against him over 20 years ago and now works as a security guard.
Francis’ most recent finish wouldn’t come in the boxing ring. The former champion would get a KO as a security guard this time around. Francis and a few others were seen in a heated altercation with a babbling customer at Boxpark in Wembley. The argument would not end in words but with a right hand from the boxer.
All it would take was one punch from Francis to put the rather aggressive man out.
Francis would take some criticism for how he handled the situation. However, there would be no hate from WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. ‘The Gypsy King’ would defend Francis following the viral video and also applauded him for his killer punch.
“I saw the video, great right hand by the way,” Fury said on Piers Morgan Uncensored. “This is what happens when you’re cheeky, rude, getting in peoples faces. What do you expect?”
“If you keep kicking a dog, it’s going to bite you isn’t it?” Fury continued. “This guy is p****d up off whatever and had a few drinks, getting cheeky. These guys are doing their job and he’s attacking them, so he’s been chinned. It’s a life lesson, isn’t it? Never go out and be cheeky to big men because you’re probably going to get chinned sooner or later.”
Francis will not be facing any charges from the scene according to the Metropolitan Police.
His boxing record was 23-24-1 when he retired in 2006. In the heavyweight division, Vitali Klitschko, Danny Williams, and Tyson were some of his most prominent opponents. His last 14 professional fights have ended in defeat, and he recently fought Dan Cadman in a charity bout.
