We all know being cocky isn’t usually a good idea, especially when its boxing… and the fight isn’t even over. We have a prime example of how showboating with only 15 seconds left can get you knocked out, and embarrass you.
Sabri Sediri, a 25-year-old french boxer, was ready to celebrate a win during a big time match up against Sam Maxwell at Leicester Arena. Sabri was ready to take home the win with about a minute left and because to dance and mock Maxwell while also keeping his hands down.
Maxwell wasn’t taking it and decided to go after him for one last shot at a win, and it happened. Maxwell landed a great punch on Sabri with only 15 seconds left to get the KO. Lesson here, don’t showboat kids.
