Ex-heavyweight champ Julius Francis, who fought Mike Tyson, KOs rowdy man with one punch in new job as security officer | The Sun

FORMER British boxer Julius Francis appeared to knock out a rowdy man with one punch outside BoxPark in Wembley. 

The incident, which has gone viral on Twitter, showed an altercation between a group of men and the security staff. 

One individual in particular begins to grow irate and looks to become aggressive. 

But as he begins to walk towards Francis, who is seen taking steps back, the ex-fighter lands a right hand and drops the man. 

The Met Police said: "Police are aware of footage circulating on social media showing an incident involving security staff and a member of the public outside Boxpark in Wembley.  

"An investigation into the circumstances, including to establish the identity and welfare of those involved, is under way.

"There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing." 

The Sun has reached out to BoxPark for comment.

Francis, now 57, won 23 of his 48 bouts and famously lost to boxing legend Mike Tyson in 2000 in Manchester. 

He won heavyweights belts during his career, including the Commonwealth and British title.

In 2009, Francis was sentenced after a road rage attack saw him punch a car window, spraying the driver with glass.

It caused the driver minor injuries to his face as Francis – who apologised – was ordered to carry out 140 hours of unpaid work and told to pay £200 compensation to his victim.
