We don't know how 2016 has become the year of the boxer but we're not going to complain.

Ryan Thomas has seen his notifications explode in the last nine hours after he posted this video of his dog, Boston, attempting and acing the #MannequinChallenge that's taken the internet by storm.

Since sharing the video early this morning, it's been liked and retweeted over 100,000 times. International fame awaits, and we're almost certain that Boston will get his wish and appear on Ellen before the week is out.
