A man, dressed in a blue du-rag, can be heard yelling profanity at Francis “Hope you’re having a heart attack, you fat ****” before then pushing a smaller guard.
The scuffle moves away from the front of the venue as the man in the blue du-rag continues to confront other revelers while onlookers can yell “chill.”
The man can be seen pushing multiple people and yelling obscenities as the incident appears to escalate.
As the man turns to Francis and appears to be raising his fist, the former pro boxer punches the man’s head with his right hand.

Bystanders reacted with a mixture of shocked breathing and cheers as the stricken man’s friends came to his aid.
The man falls unconscious to the ground as his friends confront Francis, who ran away from the incident, and ask why he hit him.
The man is then rolled into the recovery position as his friend is told, “It wasn’t necessary, it wasn’t necessary.”
Francis, now 57 years old, hung up his boxing gloves in 2006 with a professional record of 23-24-1.

The condition of the man who was knocked unconscious is unknown at this time.
It is not known if any arrests have been made in connection with the incident and the Met Police have been contacted for comment.
