Julius Francis never really had a stellar boxing career.
He finished his career with a so-so record of 23 wins, 24 losses, and 1 draw with 12 KOs. Sure, Francis captured a couple of British heavyweight titles but except for a couple of bouts that featured an old Mike Tyson and Vitaly Klitschko, his run is far from stellar.
And then you hear this piece of news. There is some pissed-off dude at BOXPARK Wembley threatening people. I think he had buddies which made him feel like he was untouchable but the amount of disrespect proved too much for the former British champion.
And while yeah, Francis should have known better to use his gifts for peace in a more non-physical manner, the dude was kind of asking for it. You can't just go to a place and threaten a slew of grown men without getting your just desserts. If you are asking for a fight, then one would probably give you what you ask.
Be careful what you wish for though. You might end up facing a former heavyweight champion.
