Footage emerged this week from Floyd Mayweather’s gym in Las Vegas showing one fighter getting heavily knocked down. What happened next angered quite a few people.
The knockdown looked very heavy indeed.
A big shot in sparring that did that kind of damage could take the fighter a while to recover from and potentially might not be allowed to spar again for a couple of months if he suffered a concussion.
After the knockdown people could be heard shouting and laughing here:

Tony Bellew was not impressed:
Stupid idiots shouting should of jumped into the ring to the poor lads aid as he could of choked on his own tongue! Instead they wanna stand there and shout damn like it’s a good thing! I’ve done this to a few over the years and my coach is in the min he hits the floor! ??

Bellew wasn’t the only fighter who took exception to the shouts.
Fellow Liverpool fighter and undefeated propsect Anthony Fowler said:
