Best actor nominee Will Smith appeared to slap presenter Chris Rock in the face with an open hand and shouted a vulgarity at the comedian for making a joke about his wife's appearance at the Oscars ceremony.
Fighting out of: Oberniki, Poland
Dawid "Zales" Zalewski (the Polish spelling version of the name David) started slap fighting with the Polish "PunchDown" league.
He is the 3-time (and current) champion of PunchDown 2, 3 and 5. Dawid did not participate in PunchDown 4 - which was won by Niepokonany Kostrzes - because of a weight limit for participating in the event. However, Zales and Kostrzes fought in the PunchDown 5 final (which Zales won).
As of February 2022, Dawid has not lost any professional slap fights.
Dawid and Da Crazy Hawaiian did a slap fight on March 5th, 2022 in Ohio (USA) at the Arnold Classic, hosted by Logan Paul. Dawid Zales was the winner. Watch The Dawid Zales vs Da Crazy Hawaiian Fight Here.
Rumors are that there will be a rematch of Dawid vs Da Crazy Hawaiian in Miami on June 30th, 2022.
On March 5th, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio, two of the world's best slap fighters faced off against each other at the Arnold Schwarzenegger sporting event, hosted by Logan Paul.
Both slap warriors gracefully took powerful shots in the first round. In the second round, Da Crazy Hawaiian gave Zales a slap that stunned him in a way that we've never seen him stunned before. Zales went "out" for a second and stumbled back so hard that it took 3 giant men to catch him so that he didn't fall on his ass.
Ultimately, David Zales won by way of knockout in the 3rd round, with Da Crazy Hawaiian slumping over onto the table before falling to the floor.
During the fight, Koa expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that all judges were from Poland and that there were no judges from the USA. We also found it weird that one of the guys catching Koa was celebrating at the same time.
Hmmm... I think we need a rematch!
