One man, wearing a blue du-rag, can be heard yelling profanities in the direction of Francis ‘I hope you have a heart attack, you fat ****’ before he then shoves a smaller security guard.

The scuffle moves away from the front of the venue as the man wearing the blue du-rag continues to confront other revellers while onlookers can be heard shouting ‘chill’.

The man can be seen shoving multiple people and yelling obscenities as the incident appears to escalate. 

As the man turns toward Francis and appears to raise his fist, the former pro boxer unleashes a right-hand punch to the man’s head.

Bystanders reacted with a mixture of shocked gasps and cheers as the stricken man’s friends rush to his aid. 

The man falls to the ground unconscious as his friends confront Francis, who walked away from the incident, and ask why he punched him.

The man is then rolled into the recovery position as his friend can be heard saying: ‘There was no need, there was no need.’

Francis, now aged 57, 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 stage. 

It is unknown if any arrests have been made in relation to the incident and the Met Police have been contacted for comment.
