A scuffle broke out during a meeting of the Ukrainian Parliament when the normally civil group attempted to pick a new speaker.

The men, seemingly hesitant, pushed and shoved each other, in what looked like an effort to do so just for the sake of doing so.

In an ironic twist, the newly elected Vitaly Klitschko, a former heavyweight boxing champion, did not partake in the brawl.

He jokingly told the Ukrainska Pravda newspaper that his punches would be too dangerous.

“I understand that many people want Klitschko to launch an offensive but I would like to remind (them) that, for example, in the United States a boxer’s fists are considered weapons and the fists of a world champion are considered nuclear weapons,” the fighter turned politician said. “We will not use these weapons for now.”

The Ukrainian Parliament is sure to bounce back from the incident.
