A father’s decision to discipline his son by engaging him in a boxing bout has been met with outrage online.
For skipping class, the father punched the boy repeatedly in the face during the fight, according to a report by the Dailymail.co.uk.
The unnamed man, who is believed to be from America, decided to force his 17-year-old son to face him after hearing that he walked out of lessons without telling him.
A five-minute video showing the whole 'fight', which leaves the teenager bruised, covered in blood and sobbing, gained attention after being uploaded to several social media pages.
It has already received nearly 1.5million views, the report said.
During the fight, the boy did his best to cover his face with his gloved hands but his father repeatedly hit him while berating him about missing school and discussing the ways to punch someone.
Throughout the fight, the father shouted at the boy and mocked him as landed heavy punches on his face.
The fight ends when the man lets his son go and wash his face under a tap.
The father then returns to in front of the camera and states: 'That's how you discipline a teenager. Give them a chance to shoot back.
'Let him show he he feels. He feel like he want to cut up at school - he knows the consequences. He has to deal with me when he gets home. That's what it is - teenage discipline 101. And that wasn't even the first round.'
While many who watched the video condemned the man, other expressed support for his action.
