Watch Andre Dirrell’s Uncle Slug Opponent After Title Fight

Andre Dirrell faced off against Jose Uzcategui during an IBF interim super middleweight title fight. Dirrell was awarded the fight after Uzcategui sent his opponent to the canvas with a flurry of blows after the bell. But Dirrell’s uncle wanted more than just a win, he wanted revenge. Leon Lawson Jr then sucker punched Uzcategui in the aftermath of the contest. Local police in Maryland are now seeking Lawson over the incident. “I’m sorry for what my coach has done,” Dirrell said. “My coach is my family, my uncle, and he was worried. He cares for me. He loves me. Please forgive him.” Watch the scene play out below (loads from twitter so give it a sec):
