A shocking video of two men openly sparring in a bare knuckle fight in Sligo has surfaced online.

The fight - which occurred in broad daylight - lasted almost three minutes as pedestrian shoppers and cars passed by.

In the clip which was posted to YouTube, the two men exchange blows while onlookers egg them on and a young boy records the whole scene.

Before long, passersby stop to watch, and the fight intensifies as each man delivers blows to the head and nose to his opponent.

One of the men appeared to be bleeding from the eye.

But the fight seems to break up as soon as gardai approach the scene.
