Boxing Ref Steve Willis Goes Viral Again For Another Priceless Reaction To Punch
You can always count on Steve Willis to produce some utter gold when he's officiating boxing matches. And low behold, he's gone viral again for this reaction Josesito Lopez's deadly shot to Keith Thurman in the seventh round last night.
Lopez leathered the WBA Welterweight world champion with a wicked straight right but somehow Thurman, back in the ring after two years away due to injury, survived the onslaught and went on to win on points.
And Willis's reaction was absolutely all of us when he got caught square in the face - his mouth wide open and his eyes nearly popping out of his head as he watched on from the best seat in the house.
You can just tell Willis absolutely loves his job, can't you? He's a fan at the end of the day and can't help but going bonkers inside the ropes.
The New York native, who has been a professional referee since 2003, really adds to the enjoyment of boxing bouts because of his incredible facial expressions and mannerisms.
Someone produced a superb of compilation of Willis doing his thing and we'd highly recommend you check it out:
What an absolute geezer...
