“Travellers” dubbed Hulk and Bigfoot in bloody 40-minute battle to win £60k


A BRUTAL video shows two “travellers” dubbed Bigfoot and Hulk batter each other for 40 minutes – to win a £60,000 prize.

The clip, which was filmed at a “secret location” in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, captured the two fighting to settle an argument which started in a pub over a year ago.

The fighters, named in the video as Joe Joyce, known as the “Hulk”, and Patrick Nevin, known as “Bigfoot”, battled each other in a wet, abandoned car park.

The pair end up with blood streaming from their faces and refused to stop fighting, despite multiple requests from the “referees”.

After 40 brutal minutes Patrick Nevin tapped out, leaving Joe Joyce to win by a technical knockout and collect the £60,000 prize money.

According to Harper videos, who filmed the brutal clip, both fighters families fronted £30,000 each.

Harper videos uploaded the video to Youtube with the caption: “Joe Joyce vs Patrick Nevin. Gypsy Bare Knuckle Fight BKB Boxing.”

The clip has now had over 70,000 views since it was posted last month.

The footage begins with both men standing in a wet and abandoned car park, surrounded by onlookers.

Joe Joyce, wearing blue shorts, and Patrick Nevin, wearing black and yellow shorts, fight and scrap for over 40 minutes in the shocking video.

At more than one point during the clip, the man named as Joe Joyce grabs the man named as Patrick Nevin by the head and lands a series of sickening thuds.

The pair continue to fight and scrap, and at 20 minutes into the fight the man named as Patrick Nevin already has a burst nose and is bleeding profusely.

The man named as Joe Joyce continues to land a series of sickening blows as he grunts and throws his fists into his opponents face.

The referees try to get the pair to shake hands at multiple points throughout the fight, but both continue to battle on.

At a staggering 40 minutes into the fight, the man named as Patrick Nevin gives up – leaving Joe Joyce to win by a technical knockout.

The man named as Joe Joyce then throws his arms up in the air in celebration, and looks into the camera, with his opponents blood splattered across his hands and chest.
