France as well as other parts of the Western World continue to see riots and break downs between citizens and government for a number of reasons that seem to be getting only worse if anything.

Obviously this is a boxing site and we have nothing to do with politics but the above had to be mentioned before sharing the following.

Former French light-heavyweight champion Christophe Dettinger has been captured on video here fighting armed police with his bare fists during the vicious riots in France going on at the moment:

Incredible and very sad scenes indeed.

Europe as a whole appears to be in turmoil at the moment between issues stemming from Brexit, mass migration and many other things going on in the wider world outside of the boxing world that we live in at the moment.

The US on the other hand seems to be thriving and going from strength to strength.

For those not familiar with Christophe Dettinger, he finished his career in 2013 at the cruiserweight limit as a professional with a record of 18-4-1-7KO at the time.
