Warning: violence and language
A man in London chose the wrong place at the wrong time to cause trouble.
Julius Francis, a 57-year-old former professional boxer who was once the British champion and fought the legendary Mike Tyson in 2000, is now a guard at Boxpark Wembley. NY Post reports.

A video circulated on social media on Tuesday shows a man in a blue fool repeatedly shouting obscene language at security officials and other people who appeared to be on-site workers, saying, “Well, you!” too many times to count, and shout, “I’ll stuff you!”
A man pushes several people away when a group of guards tries to push him away from a fence around space.
At about 45 seconds of the clip, Francis unleashes an absolutely vicious right hand, knocking down the destroyer with one of the most brutal blows to the head you’ve ever seen.
“Police are aware of footage circulating on social media showing an incident involving security officials and a member of the public outside the Wembley Box Park,” police said.
“Circumstances are being investigated, including to establish the identity and well-being of the defendants.
“There were no detentions, an investigation is underway.”
A Boxpark spokesman added: “Our team is aware that videos are being distributed online.
“This incident is currently being considered and conducted by a police investigation and so we cannot comment on the incident at this time.
“We would like to emphasize that the safety and well-being of our customers and our employees are our number one priority.”
The video garnered more than 6.1 million views on Twitter in less than 12 hours.
Faced with Tyson in 2000, Francis went only slightly better than his enemy in this video. Less than a minute passed in the second round as Tyson won by TKO.
However, if anyone has a desire to start any problems at Boxpark Wembley, this video should dissuade the idea.
