Former heavyweight boxer Julius Francis who fought Mike Tyson in 2000 was pictured killing a rowdy partygoer while working as a security guard.

Francis 57 retired from the boxing ring in 2006 with a 23-24-1 record but it turned out he barely lost power when he settled the feud at BOXPARK near Wembley Stadium. Video posted on social media showed a group of men initially arguing with Francis outside the venue with security Stay in the background.The group was kicked out of the security line and continued to clash with staff. One then turned away and was met by Francis who knocked the punter to the ground with his right hand.Those filming the incident could be heard saying "oh shit" as he fell to the ground.

Francis walked away from the incident while the devastated man was helped by his friends. He was placed in a recovery position while two other men spoke to the former fighter. Hear another man say no need no need. Mirror Fighting has contacted BOXPARK for comment.


Francis won the first six fights of his career before being eliminated by John Ruiz in 1994. Scott Welch then stopped his five-game winning streak before starting a tug-of-war.


Francis was eliminated in the second round by Vitali Klitschko in 1998 and suffered the same fate against Tyson two years later. Before losing 14 straight he won only two until he hung up his gloves.

Boxing fans were quick to share their thoughts on the incident on social media with one sentence: "It's not a smart move in my opinion to stand in front of someone crazy enough to step into the ring with Mike Tyson. !  Another joked: Eddie Hearn will have him fight [Anthony] Joshua next on DAZN PPV Once he gets spanked by [Oleksandr] Usyk. "It's a 50/50 fight! At this point [it] could be. 


Another user said: "This could have been handled by the guards. As defiant as this guy is you don't have the right to play someone like that especially as a guard. The people in the comments section may be kids or just uneducated adults who think it's a good thing.
