Bare-knuckle boxer reveals what happens in the afterlife as he’s brought back after ‘die’ from electrocution
A British bare-knuckle boxing star has revealed what happens in the afterlife after claiming he was brought back after he “died” from a massive electrocution.
Aaron McCallum is currently preparing to fight Scott McHugh for the British title tomorrow at BKB32 at London’s O2 Arena.
The teaser insists he can “play hard” and “bring home the belt” for five rounds when asked about the showdown.
And he’s determined to make the most of his “second chance” after being involved in a horrific accident when he was just six years old that left him “dead”.
The father of six children told Daily Star: “I was playing football with my brother and two of his friends on a field and the ball went into this building.
“I was running after it, slipped on a board, and as I was trying to protect myself from falling, I grabbed some wires that sent thousands of volts through me.” Everything was so brightly lit I could barely see and I started to climb
“I saw a castle and floated over the walls. On the other side, someone was reading a book to some children. He came to me and said, “It’s too early for you, you should go back.”
“I woke up hearing my brother screaming and it turns out my dad threw me off the net and saved me. But I know there is something [after death]. I saw it, but I was given a second chance.”
Since then, McCallum has struggled with both alcohol and drugs as an adult, until a chance text message from his partner one night changed the course of his life.
The ex-bodybuilder admitted that he “got out of control for a couple of years” and regularly drank “a bottle of vodka a day” and even ended up living on a boat after being kicked out of his house before everything changed .

He explained, “I was at the bar one night when my wife texted me, ‘There’s a bare-knuckle boxing show coming up, you should try that.’ I knew straight away that this was my chance.”
Despite being eliminated in the opening round of his first bout against former UFC fighter Chris Fishgold, he has since scored two one-round KOs himself, with his style being compared to that of a young Mike Tyson.
McCallum added: “I’m stocky like Tyson and I’m trying to emulate his style. I’m an aggressive frontline fighter who can take some discouragement.
“I’m not trying to be the best boxer in the world, but I want to show people that I can be one of the best bare-knuckle boxers in the world.”
