Bloody seats and bruised egos; the ring failed to contain the carnage at a boxing match in east London Saturday night where a mass brawl erupted amongst the rowdy crowd.
The chaos at the Copper Box Arena in east London was reportedly sparked by the shock defeat of fan favorite Sam McNess who was brutally beaten by Asinia Byfield.
Eyewitnesses captured the mass brawl of punches which left the amateur fighters and fans alike with a bad taste in their mouth.
The night’s main event between light-heavyweights Anthony Yarde and Richard Baranyi was almost called off as security tried, and failed, to control the crowd. Yarde eventually went on to defeat Baranyi.
