Boxer heel-turns and bizarrely attacks his own poor coach

Boxer Levan Shonia had a full on temper tantrum and couldn't accept defeat during his last fight and tried to fight anybody that was standing in his way, and that included members of his own team.

The agitated Georgian middleweight was bested by unbeaten Spas Genov in Sofia, Bulgaria on Saturday night, and then took out his fury on his trainer, who was forced to grab the ropes while being attacked.

Appearing on the undercard of the Kubrat Pulev versus Hughie Fury bout, Shonia was staring a 12th career defeat in the face as he awaited the official scores.

In the undercard fight was a freakish precursor the main event which saw English favourite Hughie Fury's hopes of a title fight with Anthony Joshua spectacularly dashed by Kubrat Pulev.

The DNF (did not finish) result is Ricciardo's eighth of a long season, which saw his power unit fail on five separate occasions. VideoThe Perth F1 driver took pole position for the Mexico Grand Prix, after a sensational qualifying lap.

Perhaps summing up his night, Shonia struck out with a right hand at his coach, who leaned back to avoid too much damage before responding with a slap of his own.

In the footage the duo are standing in the corner when he throws a punch, hitting his coach on the shoulder.

"Having noticed the altercation, the referee rushes over to step in".

The judges returned a verdict of 117-111, 118-110, 115-113.
