TWO men were left covered in blood as shock footage emerged of a bare-knuckle brawl to settle a dispute.
Fighters Decca Heggie and Danny Christie, both from Carlisle, fought non-stop for over ten minutes in a boxing gym.
And after both being left battered and bruised, they posed for a picture and shook hands.
Former Scottish crime figure Paul Ferris, now an author, praised the two rivals for their brutal clash.
Ferris tweeted: “Absolute respect to both Decca – Danny & The fair play folk and organizers.
“Well done and now put it all to bed and move on. Both winners on the night.”
The two are both former fighters, with Christie a boxer and Heggie an ex-undefeated bare-knuckle champion.
More recently, Heggie has moved into acting and motivational speaking, even running his own YouTube channel.
