A boxing bout in Bolivia ends in chaos when a boxer delivers ground and pound and stomps to a downed opponent.
Bolivian boxing icon Saul Farah defended his Bridgerweight title versus Pedro Tabares last night, winning the fight by DQ after one of the wildest endings you could ever see in a boxing ring.
Farah (73-26-3) was likely losing his 103rd professional fight versus on the scorecards when he was dropped in the sixth round. As soon as Farah hit the canvas Tabares swarmed him, delivering ground and pound and, after the referee tried to pull him away, a series of stomps. At least one of the stomps landed flush on Farah’s head.
You can see all that havoc below in video provided by Tim Boxeo on Twitter.
