UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis beats up a boxer in the gym.

Don’t mess with ‘The Black Beast’.

After being called out by a boxer who was disrespecting MMA fighters in his local gym, UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis laced up the gloves and taught the boxer a lesson he won’t soon forget.

Lewis recently uploaded footage of what looks to show the top-five UFC heavyweight contender beating a man senseless in the boxing ring — presumably the boxer who was talking trash.

“When a boxers said he will knock me out because I’m a mma fighter,” Lewis posted on Thursday afternoon.

According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Lewis beat the boxer in less than a minute.

“Asked Derrick about this. He said a boxer at his gym was talking “a lot” of smack about boxers vs MMA fighters. This happened yesterday. Lasted 1 minute, he said,” Helwani reported.

Lewis, who trains out of 4oz Fight Club in Houston, Texas, last fought earlier this year at UFC 244, where he beat Bulgarian heavyweight Blagoy Ivanov via split decision. The heavy hitting knockout artist is currently ranked #5 in the UFC heavyweight rankings.
