In the Bulgarian boxing scene, Georgian boxer Levan Shonia wouldn’t accept a referees decision and decided to rogue on his own coach.
In this absurd footage [H/T Deadspin], Shonia turned on his coach after it was announced he lost a fight to Spas Genov on the weekend. When his coach tries to pull him in after Shonia tries to continue the fight post-decision, the boxer turns on his coach and throws a right hook at him.

Kudos to Shonia’s coach for taking the punches and firing back himself. What was the boxer thinking? He wasn’t.
Thankfully, a referee calmed this situation down nearly as soon as it started. As for Shonia’s coach, I wouldn’t expect him to hold that position much longer. It can’t be worth getting punched over.
