Watch brutal phone box boxing as fighters beat each other up inside iconic British booth in latest viral sport

RUSSIA have taken the phrase 'fighting in a phone booth' quite literally.

The term is used when a bout is contested in close range with little breathing space, usually providing excitement.

But Russian promotion 'Punch Club' have gone to extreme lengths and organised fights to be staged in real-life phone booths.

What follows are punch-ups between brawlers throwing everything from hooks, to elbows and even slaps inside an iconic British phone booth.

The 'bouts' have been staged in Moscow and see fighters battle it out wearing only hand wraps for protection.

A winner appears to be declared when one fighter has had enough and surrenders.

But the craziness is not only saved for just the odd phone box fighting, with several other bizarre contests on offer.

That includes bloodied bouts between fighters wearing MMA gloves but dressed in collared shirts with braces and suit trousers.

Those fights are staged in makeshift rings with fans crowding around the ropes.

Perhaps the most unorthodox event staged is 'car jitsu' which has competitors rolling around in a motor.

Opponents are supposedly performing Brazilian jiu-jitsu and anything in the car can be used to gain an upper hand.

Vik Mikheev created the concept two years ago, which has now become increasingly popular in Russia.

Mikheev said: “In 2020, I came up with the idea of doing competitive grappling in vehicles.

“Since October of 2020, I and my friends run small tournaments of Car Jitsu to study the aspects of jiu-jitsu application in such a confined space.“
