The video was released by the Sun newspaper and showed Haris, 21, scrapping on a night out in Doncaster, Yorkshire, last May.
Haris and the victim can be seen lashing out at one another, with a pal in the background yelling: "Go on Haris."
The TV star lands another punch on the unknown man, who can be seen staggering away at that point, then Haris turns to the camera and shouts: "I'm not a bully, I'm not a f***ing bully."
Haris then continues: "On my mum's life…"
An apparent friend of Haris' told The Sun: "We were all surprised when we heard Haris was going on Love Island. He's got quite a bit of a temper on him and if someone says something he's more than prepared to have a fight.
"He's got an advantage being a boxer and he knows he can cause damage because he trains four times a week. He knows what he is capable of because of his training. That kind of stuff has to stay in the ring."
They also added how they were surprised that ITV didn't do further checks as he's that "type of guy".
A Love Island spokesperson told The Sun: "Language and behaviour in the villa is always closely monitored, and Islanders are reminded of what we consider acceptable during their time on the show.
"Extensive duty of care protocols for all Islanders includes video training and guidance covering language and behaviour."
The Daily Star has approached ITV for comment.
This comes after Haris was caught up in a villa spat with Shaq Muhammad on the ITV2 dating show.
Boxer Haris and airport security officer Shaq, 24, came to blows on the show after Shaq accused him of stirring the pot between Islanders.
Shaq claimed Haris was "immature" and the show's youngest Islander defended himself by saying Shaq was trying to "dad him".
Fans also wondered where Haris was on Monday's episode of the show (January 23) and took to Twitter to share their concerns.
One wrote: "Where is Haris?"
A second added: "Where did Haris go and why is no one on the show talking about it…?"
While a third penned: "Where was Harris and also I heard Olivia say last night it’s good to have you back Haris. Anyway, my spider senses are tingling."
"I genuinely didn't even realise until now Haris wasn't sitting around the firepit lol where is he? Where’s Haris? Busy street fighting?" shared a fourth.
