An international student has been sentenced to six months jail after he bashed another man over a mutual love interest.
Chinese national Haopo Yang, 22, was studying at the University of Wollongong on the south coast of NSW when security cameras captured him begin to beat another man in a university common room, foreign media reports.
Footage shows Yang walk up to the man and kick his leg to get his attention before adopting a boxing stance and appearing to land more than 20 blows – particularly to his rival's head and upper body.
The victim seems to make little attempt to protect or defend himself from the punches as Yang continues to hit him.
A girl and two men make attempts to break up the fight – though it is not known if the girl shown is the subject of the scuffle.
Police documents presented to Wollongong court on Thursday suggest Yang and the man he beat up were both interested in the same woman.
