A mob took on more than bargained for when they picked up a fight with an Irish man in Istanbul. He was a professional boxer.

The incident happened after the tourist accidentally spilled water from a fridge. 

This sparked an argument and a number of shopkeepers start hitting the unarmed tourist with sticks, chairs and other blunt items. Towards the end of the video the tourist appears to continue to want to fight before he is eventually calmed down and led away.
