This is the moment a boxer knocks down a drunk man with a right hook for repeatedly bothering a young woman.
The incident took place in the district of Karsiyaka in the western Turkish province of Izmir after the middle-aged man allegedly harassed a female shop worker over several days.
She told her neighbour Coskun Kucuksayrac about the man and asked for his help.

Kucuksayrac, who works as a boxing trainer, came to the shop to speak to the suspect but ended up knocking him out when the suspected pervert ignored him and continued to oggle the young woman, as seen in the video footage.
In the clip, the middle-aged man is seen talking to someone behind the counter as Kucuksayrac approaches and pulls him away.
As the burly boxer speaks to him and taps the side of his face, the man looks away and continues speaking to the person behind the counter.
With this, Kucuksayrac punches him full in the face and the suspect drops to the floor like Tyson Fury in the 12th round of his fight with Deontay Wilder. However, unlike Fury, the middle-aged man is unable to jump to his feet.
He tries to get back up but the boxer moves in to finish him off and with a few well-placed fist pummels the suspected pervert falls limp. The boxer then appears to drag him around on the floor like a rag doll.
Explaining his actions, Kucuksayrac told local media: “Before the incident, that guy came to the store several times.
“Many people in the community complain about him, they say he takes drugs and bothers locals.
“I received a call while training and then came to the shop. I did not know whether he was drunk or maybe on drugs.
“I watched him from the door and saw him insulting the shop assistant. There was an older woman there too.
“I first pulled his arm but he continued insulting them so I acted.”
Kucuksayrac added that too many people keep quiet when they see women being harassed, saying: “Nobody bothers to react. When a man hits a woman, instead of stopping him they film it with their phones.”
It is unclear if police are involved.
