Boxer heel-turns and bizarrely attacks his own poor coach

Levan Shonia punches coach

Levan Shonia punches 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.

Judge orders Julian Assange to clean up after cat, pay bills
Judge Karina Martinez ruled against Mr Assange, saying that the foreign ministry was in charge of determining his living conditions.

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.
