This footage shows a heavyset schoolboy taking on another lad in a bare-knuckle fight in the school toilets as their classmates watch their ‘fight club’-like boxing match.
The incident took place at Tampines Secondary School in the island city-state of Singapore and a spokesperson called it a “sparring session arranged for fun” while announcing that the fight is being investigated.
In the clip, one topless boy takes on a heavyset lad in a red T-shirt with ‘Team Sirius’ on the front, one of the school’s four houses.

Meanwhile, dozens of classmates are gathered around the school toilets watching the bare-knuckle bout.
The teenagers trade blows and nearly knock each other down, before the heavyset boy in the T-shirt turns his back and says that he does not wish to continue as the other kid lands more blows.
At the end of the clip, the two boys embrace as spectators cheer on their efforts.
The video was widely shared on social media, prompting the school to tack action.
A spokesman said that an investigation showed there was no animosity between the two brawlers, who were not injured and only scrapped “for fun”.
He added: “Nonetheless, we view this incident seriously and have counselled the students, who have expressed remorse for their actions.”
Meanwhile, the school will be working closely with parents to make sure that all pupils learn from the incident.
