A bear-boxing fight in Kamchatka

Italian photographer Alessandro Bormida captures a battle between two boxer bears who put up a fight while their mother was fishing in Lake Kuril in Kamchatka.

Although the fight took place without boxing gloves, the cubs’ brothers adopted poses strikingly similar to those of professional boxers.

Standing on their hind legs, the angry falcons clenched their “fists” and demonstrated an excellent ability to dodge punches.

After a few minutes of fighting, however, one bear cub did knock out the other. After one of the brothers fell to the ground, the other took pity on him by enclosing him in his bear hug, the Daily Mail reports.
