LABUAN: It was like the Fight Club for a vocational student here who turned a recreational college lake into a kick boxing ring.

His friends could only look on, resulting in one student being thoroughly beaten up.

The cursing, taunting and egging on that led up to the fight on April 18 was captured on a 30-second video clip by a student using his smartphone and who later posted it online.

It is unclear what sparked the argument between two boys, both aged 16, that led to the brutal fight.

The video showed a student watching the fight without trying to step in between the two boys, only becoming peacemaker after the last “knee strike”.

A police report was lodged by the victim’s parents yesterday.

Labuan police chief Supt Muhamad Farid Ahmad said a probe was being carried out.

He said the victim’s statement was taken when the police report was lodged.

“We have yet to obtain full details on the incident from college authorities and would advise members of the public to not share the video”. — Bernama
