Cat's Impressive Boxing Skills 'Give Mayweather a Run For His Money'

A cat has gone viral on TikTok due to its impressive boxing skills.

In the footage, posted to the video-sharing platform by user kotidiotnomer1, a man's hand can be seen outstretched as the pet stands before him, upright on its back legs.

The tabby then pulls one paw back and begins hitting its owner's hand, with both precision and speed.

After landing a fair few smacks, the animal then proceeds to use the other leg to do the same, all the while looking very focused on its target.

Although the hits appear to be with some force, the video is set to dubbed noises which give the illusion of a harder impact.

The text overlaying the clip is written in Russian, but can be translated to: "Cat - Boxer."

The video, which was posted to TikTok on June 4, has gone viral online, surpassing a whopping 57.2 million views.

It has also been shared more than 561,600 times and received 6 million likes.

Many people took to the comments section to offer their thoughts on the hilarious footage.

One TikTok user, DatGuy Manny, wrote: "This cat would genuinely give Mayweather a run for his money."

Another person, Dee Weezy, added: "That cat can throw dem paws I see... Nice sparring session."

Hey typed: "Wait... they actually hit you?!?! I just thought they lightly tap you."

An account by the name of Ramenkingrosi commented: "This cat gonna go eight rounds."

Whereas Joe Jr. joked: "Slim got paws..."

And if talented felines are what you like to read about, you may also enjoy this clip of a cat that has learned to laugh just like a human.

In the video, which was shared to TikTok by Mason Glasco, known online as @maseplace, a ginger cat appears to mimic its owner's laugh in an uncannily similar way.

The incredible video starts by him saying to viewers: "Guys, I taught my cat to laugh. Okay ready? Hold on." He then turns to his pet and says: "Can I get a 'ha ha'?"

Remarkably, the animal then opens its own mouth and copies the sounds that Glasco has made, before doing this again several more times with different variations of laughter.
