At least 10 Russian men belonging to local gang, which has been blamed for a rise in petty crime in the small Russian town of Starokorsunskaya, picked the wrong man to bully, and much to our enjoyment, it was all captured on video.
The Daily Mail reports that 29-year-old Nicolai Vlasenko and his wife were enjoying a night out at a local bar. Vlasenko had left to visit the restroom, and upon his return to the table, he found a group of men harassing his wife, insisting she join them at their table.
Vlasenko did not take kindly to the men bothering his wife, and told them to leave her alone, as reported by 9 News.
The leader of the Russian thugs, Leonti Yevdokimov, 33, told Vlasenko for them to take their discussion outside. Only, Yevdokimov didn’t know he was talking to a professional boxer and martial arts expert. As the men surrounded Yevdokimov outside, they must have felt fairly confident in the presumed outcome. Eyewitness Eldar Vinogradoff, 27, told the Daily Mail what he saw first hand.
“There were at least ten of them, led by the two who thought they were real big shots.”
CCTV outside the bar recorded what must have been a scene from a movie as Vlaskenko knocked three of the thugs out cold with seemingly no effort whatsoever.
The eyewitness continued to share what he saw.
“One of them took off his shirt and started squaring up to the boxer. And I don’t think he even knew what hit him when he went down like a bowling pin. A second man tried to kick the boxer and he was floored instantly, as well. Then a third man joined in, and he was left staggering and on the point of collapsing after taking three blows to the head and not landing one himself.”
It didn’t take long for the other thugs to back off after seeing three of their group lying on the ground. The Daily Mail reports that the gang hired a lawyer to file a complaint with the police that they had been attacked. However, the police are taking no action against Vlaskenko since the video footage shows he was acting in self defense against at least 10 to 12 other men.
Vlaskenko’s wife must feel so proud and honored.
