Several boxing fans got into an altercation following Devin Haney vs George Kambosos Jr. boxing match. A brawl broke loose and one fan got knocked out.
Georges Kambosos and Devin Haney entered the ring undefeated on Sunday at the Marvel Stadium in Australia. The two exchanged blows to determine the 8th undisputed champion of the four lightweight belts. The 23-year-old Devin Haney won the unanimous decision and became the youngest undisputed champion in the four-belt era. The judges scored the fight 116-112, 116-112, and 118-110 in Haney’s favor.
Haney’s impressive performance stunned the three judges as well as many boxing fans out there. However, some fans were disappointed by the result and couldn’t accept Kambosos losing the match. Following the event, an incident occurred just outside Marvel Stadium.
A brawl broke loose between a number of boxing fans who were leaving the stadium. The brawl was pretty intense with one man in particular getting knocked out and laying flat on the pavement. The brawl was also quite crowded with individual clashes occurring in several spots.
The perpetrators already left the scene when the police arrived.
“Those involved in that incident left the scene before police arrived and no victim has come forward at this time.” Victoria Police spokesperson said.
“Unfortunately, there were a few disappointing incidents with police arresting an intoxicated male who was being evicted and found to be in possession of dr*gs.” The spokesperson added.
Violence erupted after another major sporting event in Melbourne with brawls outside Marvel Stadium after the historic boxing showdown inside. Fans threw punches as they left the event after watching the Aussie star suffer a major blow. https://t.co/5zYfOfGqUb @tdolling #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/VCmKXgccBg
