“I love Belfast” Onlooker laugh as two “chavs” battle it out in the middle of the city


DRAMATIC video shows two “chavs” brawling in the middle of Belfast as onlookers laught and cheer.

One spectator says “I love Belfast” as the men swing punches at each other and eventually collapse on the pavement.

Jordan McWilliams filmed the the footage, which shows two men scrapping on March 1, with the caption: “Two alpha smicks fight for dominance.”

Two men in grey jogging trousers, one with a blue jacket the other with a grey fleece, are seen fighting on Rosemary Street.

They both appear to be pulling at each other’s sleeves and tussling in the middle of the street.


As someone can be heard saying “I love Belfast,” the fighting pair begin to grapple each other around the neck.

The camera briefly turns away from the action and when it returns, the man wearing the blue jacket appears to have pinned his opponent onto the ground and is on top of him.

Their legs also intertwine as the blue jacketed man tries to throw a punch to the face before brakes can be heard screeching from a delivery driver braking up the fight.

Brian Craighead responded online: “250 punches threw nothing landed.”

Donna Mccourt commented: “Better fights on the jeremy kyle show ffs.”

A 23-year-old man was arrested but later released on bail pending further police enquiries.

Gary Ryan said: “Referee in the tracksuit with the blonde hair.”

Luke Dodds commented: “Love nature documentaries.”

Speaking today, door supervisor Jordan explained: “One of the men was groping themselves and then they started fighting.

“There was nothing really significant, a lot of damage.

“Everyone appreciates a good chav fight and just found it funny.”

A spokesman for Police Service of Northern Ireland said: “Police received a report of an altercation at Rosemary Street in Belfast City Centre on Friday 1st March.
