Ill-feeling among the supporters of both fighters exploded into violence after super bantam Uzair Najib, 23, was stopped in the first round by Muheeb Fazeldin, 22.

Footage from the weekend bout clearly shows the bedlam on the canvas, and the ring announcer can be heard screaming for calm, saying the contest would be disqualified if peace was not restored.

There had been some animosity between the pair in the run-up to event in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, headlined by Ross Burkinshaw, who KO’d Belgian Benjamin Smoes, also in the first round.
