The video was posted on Twitter by Fight Haven. This video might give the viewers a flashback to the fights of Maywaether Jr. and his thrilling ‘pull and counter’. In the video, as a heckler goes toward the other guy with a punch locked and loaded, he doesn’t expect what the other guy has up his sleeves.

As the aggressor approaches, the smaller guy lands an immaculate ‘pull and counter’ combo knocking him down. Well, such behavior should not be promoted among the fans, but it is safe to say that the guy landed a good punch. Even though the heckler was taller than the guy, that did not hinder him from landing a cross right on his head.
