Fournette apologizes for ‘slap boxing’ depicted in TMZ video

In light of a video of LSU running back Leonard Fournette supposedly “street fighting” with another man that surfaced via TMZ earlier this week, the player has issued an apology on Twitter, saying the two were “just slap boxing.”


LSU Associate Athletic Director of Communications Michael Bonnette told TMZ that the two were indeed slap boxing, which is “a game where they basically have to touch the other person twice.”

“What you don’t see is when the video cuts off, they hug it out,” Bonnette told TMZ. “They’re not mad at each other. No one was injured.”
