DENVER – Forget Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. A confrontation between a man and a kangaroo will surely become the most interesting boxing match in the history of the internet.

While its origins are unclear, a video posted Saturday shows yet another fine example of the Australian outback – and possibly, the most Australian thing ever done by anyone in recorded history.

The video shows a man racing to help his dog as it is held in a headlock by what appears to be a full-grown kangaroo.

As he approaches, the kangaroo lets go of the dog and both face off, with the man raising his fists into a boxing stance before he punches the kangaroo right in the kisser!

"Bruh. What was that about?!” is what the visibly shocked kangaroo probably thought to itself after that strike.

After about three seconds, the kangaroo stares at the man, then at another dog, before calling it quits.
