Boxer Sam Maxwell gives himself a black eye while filming Instagram video

With billions locked down across the world, staying fit at home has become a big deal – but British boxing champ Sam Maxwell took his fitness into his own hands a little too literally as he gave himself a black eye during a live stream.

The 31-year-old Light Welterweight was showing off his range of punches via an Instagram post to his 16,000 followers.

But after he unleashed a flurry of punches, he then demonstrated his uppercut a little too well.

In good company

As you can see above, Sam took the punch like a man. And he’s laughed at himself since with a few other of his Instagram posts. But, it’s fair to say he’s an outstanding boxer with a great record. Albeit with one extra self-inflicted KO in his stats now!

And Sam Maxwell isn’t alone in giving himself a black eye.

Tyson Fury went one punch better by punching himself in the face during a live bout. It happened during his stoppage win against Lee Swaby back in 2009. Nice one, Gyspy King!
