If you thought that the spat between actors Steven Seagal and Liam Neeson was safely locked away in 2014, stand corrected. During a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Northern Irish star brought it all back into view and gave his take on things, once and for all.
Recalling being asked by a journalist what he thought about Seagal's comments about his fighting technique, Neeson said:
"I was particularly annoyed. [...] I was promoting one of the Taken movies and this journalist suddenly said, 'Hey, what do you think of Steven Seagal saying that you don't know how to punch?' I was like, 'What?!'"
As a kid, Neeson trained as a boxer so it's safe to say he definitely knows how to throw a punch. And coincidentally, Seagal has since apparently moved to Russia so there's no gathering his take on the matter years on.

This interview, shedding light on Neeson's action prowess, could not come at a better time. After reportedly announcing his departure from Hollywood, it looks like Liam is back at it. Clarifying his comments to Variety, he's just set the record straight:
"It's not true. I'm going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I'm unretired."
Do you think Liam Neeson is perfectly capable of throwing a punch?
