“Rocky” just needed all the practice he could get ahead of the big fight, even if that meant training at 40,000 feet in the exit row on a commercial airline flight.
“Rocky” Enjoys Shadow Boxing In Exit Row On Philippine Airlines
Video shows an energetic young man shadow boxing in the exit row of a commercial flight, as passengers indolently watch in muted amusement.
Based on the moving flight map and the color of the seat cushions, it appears this took place on a Philippine Airlines domestic flight.
I hope no unsuspecting passenger walking out of the nearby lavatory became one of his victims! Then again, you can be sure that no one is going to cut in front of him to use the lavatory.
Levity aside, this is poor form and people pay extra money for the extra space of an exit row seat. Even if one of the exit row seats was his own, by standing and boxing he invaded the space of other passengers.
And while some onboard incidents are clearly fake, I am not sure this one is. The boxer’s name is Vladimir Grand and he has his own TikTok channel. So sure, this could be simple “content creation” used to generate views (to the tune of 1.9 million), but he does appear to be a serious boxer.
It’s sad to see him be so shy and not wanting any attention, right?
While there are worse things onboard than shadow boxing in an exit row, this is one of the things I’d prefer to see in a gym instead of a plane…or lounge.
