This week in bonehead moves includes one boxer’s uncle and a sucker punch.
After the bout between Andre Dirrell and Jose Uzcategui, Dirrell’s uncle Lee Laweson came into Uzcategui’s corner and landed a punch of his own, according to Black Sports Online. Lawson was retaliating because Uzcategui knocked Dirrell out after the bell sounded.
“I’m very sorry for what my coach has done. But he loves me. That’s my man, that’s my uncle, that’s my brother, that’s my coach,” Dirrell said.
Police are now searching for Lawson and he will be arrested once they do, ESPN reported.
