Older Boxer Knocks Out Young Guy In Sparring Session Caught On Video

Well this fight didn't go as expected.

A clip going viral on YouTube shows a young and tough-looking boxer squaring off against an older guy in a sweater -- and as it turns out, the senior citizen has some serious power in his punch.

One commenter speculates that the older gent is Ernesto Bergamasco, a retired Italian boxer who competed in the 1972 Summer Olympics. Some claim it must be a young guy dressed up like an old man. Others say the young boxer was in a lose-lose situation: Hit hard and knock out an old guy or take a punch and get beaten by an old guy.

More than a few commenters pointed out that not only did the old guy knock his younger opponent down twice, but he did it wearing a Bill Cosby sweater.

Since the clip was posted with no explanation, it's hard to say whether this battle was legit or just another online prank. But it sure was fun to watch.
