The fathers of George Kambosos Jr and Teofimo Lopez Jr have clashed at an open media workout ahead of their sons' boxing world title fight this weekend.
It's understood Kambosos Jr was in the ring warming up when Lopez's dad "crossed the line in our area" to possibly "attack" the Aussie and his team.
Things got so heated that Kambosos Snr and Lopez Snr had to be held apart from each other as tensions truly boiled over in the gym.
It all kicked off when the dad of current undisputed world champion Lopez yelled: "Kambosos, you're gonna get your a*** kicked"
"First round, baby."
This trash-talk didn't sit well with the Kambosos camp - in particular, the Aussie's father.
"F*** off, motherf**ker," Kambosos Snr shouted back.
It looked like things were about to turn physical but security in the gym sprung into action and separated the two fuming fathers.
"C'mon you big mouth. Come over here," Kambosos Sr was heard yelling.
"You wanna walk across this f**king line? Alright. I'm gonna f**k you up first."

Footage quickly made its way onto social media and spread like wildfire.
Various angles of the incident show just how fired up to the two men were as they came inches away from going nose-to-nose.
Elsewhere, other footage followed Lopez Snr around the gym as he was being escorted to the exit door by security.

"F**king chicken," Lopez Snr yelled.
"F**k you, motherf**ker. F**k you and your coach, you f**king p**sies. You got an MMA coach. You got an MMA coach, b***h.
"F**k you, b***h, First round knockout, b***h. What are you gonna do when my son whips you down?"
Just looking at the footage that has flooded social media, it's safe to say that Australian fan favourite Kambosos Jr handled the entire ordeal pretty well.
But on top of that, he refused to back down and even invited his rivals to join him for a not-so-quiet chat in the ring.
With all that being said, he admits he was far from impressed with what went down.
"He overstepped the line," Kambosos told The Mirror.
"We're here trying to do our thing like professionals.
"But Bozo the clown wants to come over and carry on like a big man, but little does he know my father is here and he'll sort s*** out.
"I'm a pro, I do my business in the ring, what did Lopez Sr do?
"He walked over to the corner and had a little cry, he talked a bit of 'blah, blah, blah', he should do something!"
