Watch: Boxer Curtis Harper walks out of ring at start of fight

Curtis Harper

They say with sports that you tune in because you might see something you’ve never seen before. What happened on Friday night in Minneapolis was something most fans have never before seen.

Boxer Curtis Harper was all ready for his heavyweight fight against Efe Ajagba, but as soon as the bell rang for the start of Round 1, he exited the ring.

Harper’s shocking actions led to speculation that he was scared to fight, but he later shared some clarity about the matter. Harper told Premiere Boxing Champions’ Jordan Hardy that he was not getting paid enough to fight.

Harper entered the fight 13-5 but dropped to 13-6 after his loss by disqualification. Ajagba, a 24-year-old Nigerian, was 5-0 entering the fight with five knockouts. He improves to 6-0 but loses his perfect knockout to victory ratio. That had to have been the easiest win of his career.
