Knockout Of The Day: Some Damned Fool Picks Fight With Former Boxing Champ

Some months ago we saw a short but wonderful video of some loud-mouthed whipper snapper getting slept by a silent, stone-cold killer older gentleman. The video starts off with the loud dude shouting threats to the dapper and calm man standing some twenty feet away.

Then, the obnoxious, threatening guy walks over and gets in the face of the old guy only to promptly be hit and knocked out cold by a one-two combination. Before the idiot did walk over to get his come-uppance, voices from others near by warned him not to “go over there,” and also referred to the old man as “champ.” We wondered if the KO artist was who we thought it was but, being the responsible publication that we are, waited to get some type of confirmation that it was before publishing.

The Daily Mail over in the UK reports that the old-man bad ass int he video is none other than Rocky Lockridge, a former boxing champion who battled the best of the best during the 1980′s and early 90′s, including Julio Cesar Chavez, Roger Mayweather and Rafael Ruelas.

Ok, so Rocky isn’t really that old, but a long career in boxing and battling drug addiction don’t make you young by the time you’re in your 50′s. Besides, he appeared to be much younger than his assailant.

Oh yeah, we forgot to mention that Rocky knocked out that fool (and the drink out of his hand) all while wearing red pants and without his snap brim hat falling from his head. That’s some OG, super hero shiznit if we’ve ever seen it.

Today’s street fighting lesson, taters – If the guy you’re harassing stands at stares at you, without uttering a word and with total calm, and is wearing a fedora and gosh darned solid red pants, don’t go down there. Leave that man alone.

- Elias Cepeda

Lot of red in this video, I'm guessing they're all Bloods.

Nothing else ever in the world makes clunky laziness drip out from under a writer who is good but that of a deadline (given wholehearted and frankly) from a person who is the boss of them.

How are you this bad at writing? I know its basically a throw away "article", but that isn't a proper excuse when writing is your profession.
