A pair of Asian business owners in Ireland was caught on video knocking out a Caucasian man, who had allegedly been harassing them.
According to NextShark, the incident took place at the Oriental Emporium store on Jervis Street, in Dublin, Ireland.
At the start of the video, the Caucasian man was seen aiming a kick at the pair of Asian men, who in turn kicked and punched him back.
The pair then manage to throw the man out of their shop.
However, the latter appeared to later return to the shop again, allegedly to confront the two Asian men.
At this point, the older Asian man, who was wearing gloves, warned the Caucasian man to keep his distance, reiterating "this is my shop".
He then shoved the Caucasian man out the door, telling him to get out.
However, the Caucasian man did not back down, and advanced forward.
He waved his fist and could be heard saying, "Keep kicking me and I’ll ram your f****** face through that brick wall”.
It was during this second confrontation, that the older Asian man punched the Caucasian man's face, and the man crumpled to the floor, knocked out.
A few passers-by then came forward to pick the injured guy up.
One of them, a man, could be heard saying, “There’s f****** two of you”.
