Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Update (2:00 p.m.): TMZ has retracted their report. The man in the above video is not Puig. TMZ said:

The video we posted showing a man fighting another outside of Blue Martini in Miami is not Yasiel Puig.

TMZ Sports previously reported the video showed Puig based on representations made by people present at the club. But we have now determined he is not in the video.


Our original post is below.

TMZ Sports obtained footage of the November 25th fight that got Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig investigated under the MLB’s new domestic violence policy. According to a witness, the fight started after Puig pushed his sister, which Puig has disputed. The initial TMZ report said Puig “brutally sucker punched the manager, setting off a brawl,” which doesn’t appear to be borne out by the video evidence.


Neither Puig nor the bouncer pressed charges, but Puig got bruised up and left with a swollen eye. What the bouncer claimed was a sucker punch looks more like an open-handed shove.
