Watch Russian billionaire punch a dude during tv financial debate [video]
Posted by on Sep 19th, 2011

Make a mental note to never mess with a Russian billionaire wearing ridiculously tight skinny jeans during a televised financial debate.

Coz they are likely to punch you in the face.

Alexander Lebedev, Russian billionaire, ex-KGB agent, owner of the Independent and Evening Standard didn’t take too kindly to the words of another wealthy guest and didn’t hesitate to throw a pretty decent combo to his face.

See that’s what happens when you wear skinny jeans. Suffocating your ballbag makes one angry.

“Alexander Lebedev, owner of The Independent and the Evening Standard, floored ex-property developer baron Sergei Polonsky during a debate on Russia and the global financial crisis.

A stunned audience watched as the former KGB agent, who made a fortune in banking, landed a right jab on Mr Polonsky’s face.

Mr Polonsky was knocked from his chair and tumbled off the back of the studio’s elevated platform. [Sky News]

Good technique though.

Also amazing to see how normal it was treated. Audience and host seemed like it was just par for the course. That happen on US tv there’d be security and body guards diving on people.
