Sometimes boxing referees are in the line of fire during bouts and the below video shows another classic example of boxer on referee violence came during an amateur match in Slovenia.

The match was between Croatia’s Kristen Radan and Slovenia’s Blaz Sedej. As the two fighters wildly swung at each other, Sedej became intertwined with Radan and the referee approached the two fighters to break them up.

When the referee came within arm’s length of Radan, he decided to let an uppercut punch go and landed it right in the referee’s mug:

After the referee came to his senses, he disqualified Radan for the punch and awarded the fight to Blaz.
