Saturday’s event between Adonis Stevenson and Badou Jack was an interesting one. After a fan stormed the ring and caused a minor delay in one of the bouts, a referee was on the receiving end of an unexpected blow. While Stevenson and Jack were competing in the main event at the Premier Boxing Champions event at Air Canada Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the referee tried to temporarily break the fighters.
That’s when he ended up eating an uppercut from Jack.
Luckily for the ref, he stayed on his feet.
Check out the moment he ate the uppercut from a world-class boxer below:

Kudos to the ref, however, for remaining on his feet, because a lesser man would have crumbled to the canvas.
