Croatian Boxer Manages to Punch Referee in Jaw, Still Can't Record a Knockout

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterNovember 14, 2012

The easiest way to lose a boxing match is to get knocked out. Just under that and slightly less painful is punching the referee in the jaw. 

SportsGrid directs our attention to this marvelous moment in time when one boxer failed to remain sensible during a raucous bout. 

Dude just socks the ref. 

The report issues this is Croatian boxer Kristen Radan, who is going at it with Slovenia's Blaz Sedej. At some point, the fight turns into a hugging match, as many bouts are known to do. 

When the ref comes in to separate the boxers and get the action going, he gets one right in the kisser, for really no reason we can see. 

Now, some might say this was an accident, but I don't see it. 

Radan clearly has a good amount of his weight over his opponent's back. When the referee comes in, the boxer stands up just enough to unleash one hell of a left hook. 

From our standpoint, it looks like Radan unleashed the biggest cheap shot on an official we have ever seen. 

Like many, we find the best part is the ref, who takes a tremendous shot and stays upright. He disqualifies Radan and gets the last laugh by staying conscious despite getting pummeled out of nowhere.
