The farcical scenes occurred on Saturday night as MMA ace Marcin Sianos took on 8-0 boxing prospect Artur Bizewski in Koszalin, Poland.

The fight was only in the second round when the Pole appeared to completely forget the rules after he had rocked his rival and appeared to be closing in on an upset.

Viewers and the crowd watched on in disbelief as Sianos, instead of continuing his flurry of punches, went for an MMA-style takedown.

Then he unleashed some huge ground strikes after flooring Bizewski, leading to an obvious disqualification.

However, punters in attendance were furious, with a horde of angry fans trying to storm the ring and throw objects at Sianos, who had to be escorted from the ring by security.

Footage of the utterly bizarre incident soon started to spread on social media, and it did not take long for the trolls to come out and make fun.

“You can’t do that fella,” joked one.

Another commented “oops wrong sport” as a fellow X user said: “just muscle memory”.

A fourth said: “These MMA fighters they always forget themselves wether they’re in the boxing ring or in the cage.”

Even 8-7 MMA ace Sianos himself got involved, posting a statement on social media this morning.

He wrote on Instagram: “I would like to refer to my fight yesterday. At the very beginning, I’d like to thank Artur Bizewski for the duel.

“At the same time, my deepest apologies for my unsportsmanliness in the ring… there is no explanation for this, it is reprehensible and I clearly deserved disqualification.

“Throughout the difficult preparation period, a similar situation has never occurred during any of the sparring matches. I didn’t knock anyone out or elbow anyone, we were training pure boxing.

“I myself can’t explain my behaviour yesterday. I guess I might not be in a professional boxing ring anymore. But I personally think that victory by disqualifying your opponent is not something to be proud of.

“I do not consider myself a loser, nor Artur Bizewski a winner. If PUB, Rocky Boxing Night and Artur Bizewski agree to resolve the duel again, then I declare that all my gambling, regardless of the result of the fight, I will spend it to the charity goal pointed out by my opponent!

“I wouldn’t like to be seen in a negative way, I’ve never experienced any similar behaviour in my entire 20 year career and I wouldn’t want this one off incident to affect my sportsmanship.

“Shout out to all my loyal supporters and thanks for all the positive and negative comments.”
