Picking up a fight vs a stranger is kinda stupid – especially if you got no idea who you’re really up against.  Well .. some people just like to learn the hard way.

Professional boxer Nicolai Vlasenko was having a quiet drink with his wife in a bar in Starokorsunskaya, southwest Russia.

After returning from the toilet, he came back to group of gang members trying to hares her.

His attempts to end this confrontation peacefully failed as group gang leader (Leonti Yevdokimov, 33) challenged Vlasenko to take it outside.

A witness of the scene (Eldar Vinogradoff),  explained that the gang group were 10 in total.  After sizing up the Vlasenko, the leader tried to land a punch with a second member also trying to kick him. The result?  Both went down like a sack of potatoes.  The rest all froze.

After reviewing CCTV footage that showed Vlasenko clearly defending himself, local police issued a statement saying that they would be taking no further action.
