Incredible Moment The Referee Gives Losing Fighter A Motivational Talk Just Minutes After Knockout

We may have just witnessed one of the most wholesome moments inside a boxing ring in recent years.

Just a matter of minutes after getting knocked out by Joe Noynay, Australian boxer Liam Wilson found himself receiving motivational advice from none other than the referee himself.

Wilson was fighting in the co-main event of the Tim Tszyu vs Stevie Spark card when a clean body shot from Noynay dropped him.

Seeing stars from his previous blows, Wilson was clearly hurt and the referee jumped in and brought the bout to an end.

But while Wilson was preparing for the post-fight ring announcements, ringside cameras and microphones managed to pick up on a heartwarming exchange he shared with the bloke who had just waved off his fight.

Pulling Wilson to one side, for no reason whatsoever, the referee gave the young warrior some motivational advice that will undoubtedly stick with him forever.

"How you respond to this is what will define you," he told Wilson.

"Not what happened tonight, [but] how you respond. That's how champions are made."

Sometimes the best advice comes from the place you least expect.

What a wonderful moment.
