Watch: Ex-world champion Johnny Nelson splits trousers on live TV

Sky Sports

Ex-world champion Johnny Nelson suffered a wardrobe malfunction when live on air at the Sky Sports News HQ studios on Wednesday.

The former cruiserweight ruler, who jointly holds the record for several title defenses with Marco Huck, leaned forward when speaking to presenter Rob Wotton and was forced to admit his trousers had busted.

Sitting alongside Sky Head of Boxing Adam Smith, the trio then had a giggle before a red-faced Nelson walked off set away from the viewers’ prying eyes.

 

Nelson and Smith were talking about a massive few weeks of boxing coming up on Sky Sports, beginning this weekend with Gavin McDonnell’s WBC world title challenge against Rey Vargas, followed by the massive Pay-Per-View event featuring David Haye and Tony Bellew on March 4.
