Watch: Showboating boxer gets knocked out with 10 seconds left

Sam Maxwell knockout

You ever see a showboating fighter and say to yourself, “I wish someone would knock him out and teach him a lesson”? Well, your dreams have come true.

25-year-old French boxer Sabri Sediri was up big against Sam Maxwell during their super lightweight fight at Leicester Arena on Saturday before his carelessness cost him.

Sediri had already knocked Maxwell down twice in the fight and was a minute away from winning. He peppered Maxwell with a big left hook that left his opponent stumbling. Sediri mimicked taking a bow and then began dancing around with his gloves down as he dodged punches from Maxwell.

Then with 14 seconds left, as fate would have it, Maxwell finally connected and sent Sediri to the canvas:
