This ‘Boxer Cat’ is a Big Boxing Fan!

Do your pets enjoy watching your favorite TV shows? While most pets are not really interested in watching TV or following your soaps and sports shows, there are those that are surprisingly attuned to what you are watching that they might appear scared (if you’re watching a horror flick) or excited (if you’re watching a movie they find interesting, especially those that involve animals).

But there’s this cat who ruled the internet for a day when he decided to show some moves as a ‘boxer cat’ while watching a boxing match!

Indeed, this cat is extra special because instead of looking indifferent to the boxing match, it was actually following the fighters’ every move – and, amazingly, was also boxing the air just like any avid boxing fan trying to ‘help’ their favorite fighter! This is so great to watch, actually.

While the fight scene showing on the screen didn’t reveal who the fighters were, it was easy to see that this boxer cat is a big boxing fan. Of course, big boxing fans would surely recognize the fighters even on this rather grainy video from a pixelated screen — who do you think they are?

Netizens were pretty amused with this cool cat and his boxing moves. Some suggested that he should be renamed ‘Meow Hamad Ali’, a play for “Muhammad Ali’, of course.

Just check out his cool moves in this video:

Who is Muhammad Ali?

Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., was an American professional boxer and activist. He was a boxing legend and was definitely one of the most famous boxers of all time.

Known for his controversial thoughts and activism, Muhammad Ali was a prominent figure both in and out of the ring. In June 2016, he died of septic shock — decades after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s syndrome just like many other boxers.
