Dubbed By The Internet ‘The Homeless Floyd Mayweather’ Showcases Boxing Against 2 Cops
Never underestimate the power of the homeless. A lot of them, once upon a time, had a lot more prowess than they display in their current state and are waiting for a chance to unleash their repressed pride on whomever they can. Coupled with very little to lose, homeless people often have aggression that can’t be matched by those they come up against. So when this homeless guy was singled out in a shanty of dozens of homeless people in Los Angeles, he went buck wild and nearly took out two cops!
Dubbed the next Floyd Mayweather by the internet, old mate takes no prisoners as he showcases his impressive boxing technique. Hands up, he and two cops go at it. They don’t seem terribly intent on knocking him out or even using too much force to suppress the man and so their guns and batons remained holstered during the encounter.
Wearing a bright blue hoodie. The homeless man ducks and weaves the officers’ attempts to land a blow on him as traffic rolls past and a number of onlookers shout encouragement to him. We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the most action the man has seen in a largely uneventful week on the streets.
A number of people have come forth online to say that the cops should have done better in subduing him without incident. They believe that they should have followed protocol by using their training and weapons to minimize the threat. But many others have praised the officers for giving the homeless man a sporting chance and also letting him have his dignity.
It is unknown why the man was singled out, but by the end of the clip it seems he won’t be able to hold out against the officers. Check out the action on the player below.
