Julius Francis misplaced his license to work as a bouncer after a video of the previous boxer hitting a single punch at Boxpark Wembley went viral.

Frances, a former opponent of Mike Tyson, was noticed flattening a person on Dorgue who had been appearing aggressively towards solid members final week. The clip unfold like wildfire on the web with many well-known names together with Tyson Fury defending Francis for his act of self-defense.

Final week, the Metropolitan Police confirmed they’d dropped their knockout investigation, and the previous British champion appeared able to get again to work. However in an interview with TMZ on Wednesday, Francis revealed that he had misplaced his Safety Business Authority (SIA) license.

He mentioned, “SIA has suspended my license to work so I can’t work at the moment, so I’m just trying to get this going and then hopefully I’ll be back in the doors as soon as possible, and back to work as soon as possible.”

After the incident, Francis’ boss, Boxpark CEO Roger Wade rushed to the protection of his worker. “Julius Francis, a former UK heavyweight boxing champion, is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met and helps train disadvantaged youngsters to box in his spare time,” Wade wrote in a LinkedIn submit.

“My understanding is that Julius and our security team took 15 minutes to prevent this man and his friends from abusing, spitting and hitting our customers and employees. They carefully escorted him from the building under constant provocation and violence.

“Finally, the person approached Julius in a confrontational manner, and defended himself. Acts of violence or abuse of any employee should never be tolerated.”

Wade later tweeted an article detailing his response with the caption “#IStandWithJulius”.

A spokesperson for the Safety Business Authority mentioned: “We have suspended Julius Francis’ door supervisor license.

“In cases where we have suspended the license and there is no ongoing police investigation, before we consider what further action might be appropriate, we will often seek more information from other relevant sources, including the license holder. This is especially important. When a violent incident occurs, the safety of any member of the public is likely to be at risk.”

Francis retired from boxing in 2006 with a record 23-24-1. During his career, he held heavyweight titles in Britain and the Commonwealth of Nations and earned boxing titles from the likes of John Ruiz, Vitali Klitschko and “Iron Mike”.
