Yunier Dorticos is all charged up for his upcoming fight. So much so that he accidentally knocked out his trainer Eric Castanos during a sparring session.

In a video that went viral on social media, the unbeaten WBA cruiserweight champion can be seen practicing the focus mitt before a left hook dropped Castanos.

A worried Dorticos immediately went up to check if everything was fine. Castanos, however, laughed off the incident.

“It’s the second time I’ve been knocked out in my life,” Castanos was quoted as saying by DailyStar.

“The first time was a Thai, when he was competing in kickboxing. These things happen between a coach and his pupil.

“The important thing is that Dorticos advances in his preparation and we will arrive in the best possible condition to Russia.”

Dorticos (22-0-0) is scheduled to trade punches with Murat Gassiev (25-0) for the WBA Super and IBF belt in Adler, Russia, on February 3.
