PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion to find two men filmed brawl­ing ap­par­ently in a street in Swansea.

The footage, which has been widely cir­cu­lated on so­cial me­dia, shows what seems to be a vi­o­lent con­fronta­tion in­volv­ing two men, next to a car parked in the mid­dle of what is be­lieved to be Mansel Road in Bony­maen.

The two men then exchange words, be­fore one takes a swing at the other’s face.

Af­ter a brief stand-off in which the man who threw the ini­tial punch in the film squares up and takes a box­ing stance, he ap­pears to in­vite the other man to at­tempt to hit him on the chin.

But in­stead he is thrown to the floor, while the other man kicks out, be­fore also be­ing dragged down.

The two men then roll around on the floor grap­pling with each other, while on­look­ers are heard to laugh.

Bizarrely, a neigh­ing horse can also be heard in the back­ground.

Among those to have shared the clip is for­mer world cham­pion boxer Enzo Mac­carinelli, who said: “I run a box­ing gym in Bony­maen, quite a suc­cess­ful one, and I’d like to point out that these two are in no way af­fil­i­ated with my club!”

Po­lice said that, al­though the in­ci­dent had not been re­ported to them, they were aware of it, and were ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion in a bid to iden­tify the men in­volved.

A spokesman for the force said: “South Wales Po­lice is aware that footage of an al­ter­ca­tion be­tween two men, pur­port­edly filmed in Bony­maen, is cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia.

“The in­ci­dent does not ap­pear to have been re­ported to po­lice, how­ever lo­cal enquiries are un­der­way to iden­tify the in­di­vid­u­als in the video.

“Of­fi­cers would ap­peal to the men filmed and the per­son who filmed or up­loaded the video to con­tact po­lice via 101”.

Any­one who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent is also asked to con­tact po­lice.
