Most normal thinking people would tell a bouncer what was going on and have the man removed from the bar! Use your brains not your fists!

....I see, so now the rule is you have to tell a guy that you going to hit him, or it's considered a "sucker punch???."

A sucker bunch is when you tap someone on the back and as he turns around "PLOW." A sucker bunch is when you just walk up to some random guy that didn't even know he was in a fight and "PLOW."

The mouthy boy that got put to sleep knew that he was in a possible physical confrontation, and to add insult to injury was looking straight at the guy that put him to sleep.

This was not a sucker punch , this was just a guy writing checks with his mouth his ass could not cash.

It's nice to know that most of TMZ posters have vaginas, and I'm not just talking about the females.......Artofwar

No you dumb ****. The rule is if you knock some drunk guy out cold and fracture his skull because he talked some smack you didn't like, your going to prison for a good long time. Get it?

The guy was just drunk... the guy who threw the punch is going to be taking it in the rear with this face in a prison pillow.

There is no sucker punch about it. He just got knocked the "f" out. He was obviously too drunk and experiencing delayed reaction.

This is the problem when idiots drink too much alcohol. You can't expect to stand there, calling people clowns and just running off at the mouth and think no one is going to retaliate. Did he deserve a skull fracture? Definitely not...

OK ... Let's speak the facts and not what you want to believe.

1) He was kicked out a club by three bouncers.

2) After he was kicked out he walked back to talk **** to the three bouncers.

3) While he was looking at the three bouncers he was talking trash to another man ran up and snuck up and attacked him.

4) The man that attacked him came at an angle that was not from the same place as the men he was talking trash to.

5) Though it appears the guy came right in front of him ... if he you pause it .. you can see different.

6) Even if he came exactly in front of him ... the victim was not looking at him and not talking to him. He was looking at the three bouncers that kicked him out.

7) While he was distracted talking trash to the three bouncers he was attacked by a fourth man who had nothing to do with it.

8) Anyone here acting like they would of been able to see it coming is fooling themselves and has never had a real fight.

Now ... we can talk about facts or we can talk about fairy tales ... your choice.

The guy was a drunken fool. I wonder what Mr. Hormones excuse will be for knocking him out cold and fracturing his skull. Doesn't really matter because if that tape is ever viewed by a judge or jury he's screwed.

Time to start thinking about a plea deal. That's if the DA is even offering one that's worth anything. Given the video evidence and publicity the case has gotten this is an easy win for the prosecution.

Such tough talk from the gangsta mentality here today i.e., "he deserved to be punched", "I woulda hit him too". Too bad judges don't have the same mindset, but since they don't and have to follow the law, you'd be sitting in jail with a $500K bail too. Before taking the big punch, think of how your life will change in a few hours.

Where was security? They get paid to handle the abnoxious trash and to take the trash out the door and NOT let him back in. Security doesn't get paid to commit battery. Roxbury will ultimately face a lawsuit also. Sad all the way around for people who's brains are in their fists rather than their head. Thinking first, reacting second saves you money, your job, your family and a new celled front door to your new home.

Umm in most fights the person who gets the first punch thrown at him doesnt have time to react and doesnt know when the punch is comming this guy stormed up to the guys face and the dude who got knocked out knew he was comming the guy should of put his hands up. A sucker punch usually means when a person hits you from the side or from behind. This was a fair fight and the guy threw a fair punch it doesnt make it right and it sucks for both guys but it happens every night at the bar some where.
