One individual in particular begins to grow irate and looks to become aggressive. 

But as he begins to walk towards Francis, who is seen taking steps back, the ex-fighter lands a right hand and drops the man. 

The Met Police said: “Police are aware of footage circulating on social media showing an incident involving security staff and a member of the public outside Boxpark in Wembley.

“There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.” 

SE has reached out to BoxPark for comment.

Francis, now 57, won 23 of his 48 bouts and famously lost to boxing legend Mike Tyson in 2000 in Manchester. 

He won heavyweights belts during his career, including the Commonwealth and British title.

The Londoner last boxed in 2006 and after retiring he started a fitness company while working security. 

In 2009, Francis was sentenced after a road rage attack saw him punch a car window, spraying the driver with glass.

It caused the driver minor injuries to his face as Francis – who apologised – was ordered to carry out 140 hours of unpaid work and told to pay £200 compensation to his victim.
