Starokorsunskaya, south west Russia. Professional boxer Nicolai Vlasenko and his wife are out for the evening enjoying a few drinks in a local bar. Nicolai went to the bathroom and when he returned found some men harassing his wife. He told them to leave his table. An argument ensued and soon it emerged that there were a dozen men keen to try and ‘handle’ the boxer and martial artist. Leonti Yevdokimov, the leader, offered Vlasenko outside. The pro fighter obliged him.
Witness Eldar Vinogradoff, 27 saw the whole thing and said this: “When they went outside, the others were there mob-handed. There were at least 10 of them led by the two who thought they were real big shots. One of them took off his shirt and started squaring up to the boxer, and I don’t think he even knew what hit him when he went down like a nine pin. A second man tried to kick the boxer and he was floored instantly as well.”
“Then a third man joined in”, he continued. “He was left staggering and on the point of collapsing after taking three blows to the head and not landing once himself.”
Vlasenko’s lawyer issued a statement on the incident saying this: “My client wasn’t prepared to allow them to harass his wife. He was prepared to discuss it in a reasonable manner, but when they resorted to force than he was forced to defend himself with inevitable consequences.”
Here’s the crazy footage:
