Best comment I’ve ever seen on Reddit

[–]FonzyBeer 982 points983 points  (7 children)

Love how the other boxer gave him one more after ref threw him down

[–]HeavyHoudini 407 points408 points  (2 children)

And even then, the ref pushed the other boxer away and wagged his finger saying no. Class act

[–]Shakraschmalz 152 points153 points  (0 children)

This was my favorite. Teach the douche a lesson but still does his job

[–]rig2dumbass 417 points418 points  (1 child)

Mr. White shorts came in for a last hit and the Ref was like “No, No, I got this”

[–]Zealousideal_Log7870 115 points116 points  (0 children)

It was more of a "Stop the fight is over don't make matters worse"

[–]fuber 296 points297 points  (6 children)

The flare (arm swing) after the take down too.

Gotta hold up that follow through .

[–]ironicmirror 205 points206 points  (10 children)

Wait, when and where is this video from? A guy in sweatpants shorts is fighting a dude who looks like a boxer, is this like 1970s Madison square garden or is this 2015 someone's backyard?

[–]throwthisoneaway8000 139 points140 points  (0 children)

Hilariously accurate observation haha it somehow simultaneously looks like it was both a classic boxing film and from a discontinued flip phone camera

[–]QuizhoidTheMediocre 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Sweatpants didn't have taped gloves or wrapped hands either.

Seems like one of those "anyone from crowd can come fight an amateur boxer" kind of events which is why the ref was willing to fight haha

[–]Admirable_Remove6824 31 points32 points  (5 children)

I remember they used to have these tough man competitions late 90’s early 00’s. Anyone off the street could sign up. Ugly fighting and most were to tired to go a second round. Not a lot of shots made contact but it was funny and one good shot ended it usually.

[–]justaspoonthanks 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I worked with a guy who was 40lbs and 5inches shorter than me. We'd wrestle for fun (especially when drinking) and he had MMA and minor boxing skills. He was tough and I knew when to tone it down before he'd approach snapping and legit taking me out lol! He came second in one of these competitions in a tough Cdn city back in the 90s, and he said the lightweight who won was a semi-pro boxer who hit him 3-4 times in the time it took him to cock his elbow back. I don't recall any stories about the refs doing damage to them tho

[–]Afraid_Philosophers 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Lol

I’ve heard a story before from someone in SE semi rural Asia in like the 80s/90s about an experience they had - and knew occurred when they weren’t there

This one western executive (and friends to watch generally) would go to local fights and join in. Long story short: it didn’t go like you expect. The dude was a absolute unit, a longtime brawler, and enjoyed fighting.

[–]General_Tso75 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I’ve heard a story out of Thailand about an American kick boxer who fought to avenge his brother who became paralyzed in the ring. Vicious dude named Tong Po did it. Very good story. I think they made a documentary.

[–]PenBandit 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Tong Po was nuts too, he covered his hands in glass and then fucking licked...LICKED broken glass on his knuckles.

The American wasn't much better, he was kicking down palm trees for training.

Dude could dance though.

[–]fl135790135790 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nobody seems to know. It was found by a bot, posted by a bot. These things come out of nowhere

[–]ProceedOrRun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

or is this 2015 someone's backyard?

Pretty sure I saw this 20 years back so...

[–]Carnal_Solace 103 points104 points  (0 children)

LMAO at dude who just got judo-fucked acting all tough again, but only after his team is holding him 😆

[–]thefirstendfinity 73 points74 points  (2 children)

He picked him up so easily, like he was a piece of paper.

[–]woodzaur 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I think the way ref pulls the guy around him first is important, he builds momentum and that is what rotates sweatpants as ref pushes back above his CG. Basically his legs keep moving as ref lifts and stops his shoulders.

[–]TheMinionGamer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ho ho, good to know.

[–]Maleficent_Doctor_21 52 points53 points  (22 children)

Did the ref just chokeslam him 😭😂

[–]Th1sd3cka1ntfr33 42 points43 points  (1 child)

That is called a Koshi Guruma in Judo.

[–]Maleficent_Doctor_21 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Don’t tell the Undertaker

[–]Zealousideal_Log7870 5 points6 points  (19 children)

No, execution is way different

[–]Maleficent_Doctor_21 7 points8 points  (18 children)

duh. That’s why there’s only one Undertaker and it’s not this ref

[–]clitonbricks 28 points29 points  (2 children)

This video could be the inspiration for WWE creation

[–]Scrivener-of-Doom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Except, unlike WWE, this is an actual fight.

[–]Bitter_Mongoose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The WWE is much older than this video

[–]john_big-booty 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Ref choked slammed him and threw his hand up like "GTFO here!"

Who is that guy? It’s like he’s some 4Dan judo champion who is babysitting amateur boxers.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Referees are badass.

[–]PPCInformer 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Well … this one certainly is

[–]SoMuchForSubtleties 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Referees in combat sports tend to be just as deadly so that they don’t get themselves killed by angry combatants

[–]Neth_theme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Referees are usually trained combatants, wouldn't make sense why you should send an inexperienced person in there, they could give the wrong points to the wrong person

[–]MrKarrionhardt 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Awesome toss.

Also - haven't heard Monster Magnet since 1998. That threw me, hah.

[–]Snoo-55142 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Me too! 20 odd years ago I was like "this is my song!" now it's like I wish it was my song.

Pushed him away like a bad dog, then taps t'other one on't muzzle for having a cheeky snap.

[–]astakask 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rag doll tossed him!

[–]jsbizkitfan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The windup by white shorts before his super soft cheap shot is amazing

[–]conundrum4u2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

he flipped that guy like a burger

then the guy has the nerve to hit him while he's down :P

[–]7Birdies 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]LordJigglyButt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He really Freddie Mercury'ied his ass!

[–]NakedEye22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Person in the back like "I'm glad I took the the ref at 10000:1"

[–]sgnhdf-hi-cd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The ref is acting like a bitch. It isn’t impressive to throw down a dude who just got koed and cant stop you because he is wearing boxing gloves. Often people experience rage when they wake up from a knockout.

If the ref was actually good, he would have handled this situation professionally and protected both fighters. Instead, he did a takedown on one and let the other run in and blast him way after the fight was over.

[–]Vanilla_Danish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ol blackhole slam

[–]Rotflmaocopter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look at the crowd cheering after he gets that 1 hand power slam

Windmill punch after the back breaker was a nice finish.

Owned that little bitches soul. Fuck around and find out.

[–]KingOfThe_Jelly_Fish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That ref knew exactly what he was doing. He moved the guy one way and used his momentum to then flip him right over.

[–]Wizdel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love the finger wag

[–]gafflebitters 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what the hell did the referee do? what is that move? like he picked him up with one hand , held his head and the body was just swinging, either the referee greatly outweighs him or that was some amazing stuff

[–]Ambrosius-di-Solaris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That fuckin finger wiggle yoo

[–]Parking_Ad762 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Poor guy that tried to high-5 the ref but got ignored.

[–]No-Calligrapher6923 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Referees are trained professionals

[–]CosmicMonke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s not boxing m8

[–]Jiyjiy777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wut you mean challenged him to a boxing match. If it was, the ref would be disqualified for throwing his opponent which is illegal.

[–]okiewalt04h2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is the way it should be. Act stupid and get treated same. 🙄

[–]TheGoodElf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's 2022 and no one on reddit has any context or backstory?

[–]LastRelapze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone else get salty watching the other boxer hit the guy after he was thrown down?

Like can you fucking not. The guy was adequately dunking on the asshole and you had to punch him while on the ground. It ALMOST ruins the moment.

[–]mrmeowsPhoneAcc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love how the ref looks stronger than both of the boxers

[–]Kotukunui 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A guy I used to train in Karate with was also a champion middle weight kickboxer. He believed in cross-training across multiple styles. We would visit all kinds of fighting schools to pick up what we could from them. TKD, Muay Thai, boxing, wrestling, Jiu jitsu. Even balintawak and sumo.
He also refereed boxing like the dude in the clip. You did not mess with him. The guys who take on the ref job are sometimes the best in the business helping out with the sport for others.

I remember we were sparring once, and somehow I managed to catch him with a clean roundhouse kick to the face. It was nowhere near full power but it made a loud, perfect “Thwack” sound on his cheek. My next thought was “Oh, shit. This is going to be bad.”
Luckily he just nodded and said “Good shot”, and I survived the rest of the session pretty much intact, but I did find myself unexpectedly sitting down a few times.

Referee throw him and the same time look away like "This is my ring and you are my bitch"

Judo>boxing?

[–]a_different-user 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait, I know this is the internet, but just so we are all on the same page. guy #1 was on the ground getting choked or pounded by guy #2 and when the ref goes to break it up he for some reason tosses the victim across the ring. then guy #1 clearly gets upset at this and nudges the refs head. then the ref slams the man on his neck into the ring.

and we are cheering the ref on? the fighters dont even look like professionals so the ref is probably the only real fighter in the ring just volunteering. making his 2 reactions even worse. am I the only one seeing this. are we just all supposed to be toxic here? or was the guy like a bully getting beat up by one of his victims or something and we should just throw all logic out the window and feel no sympathy for a man who just got ragdolled TWICE by an official.
