The YouTube boxing clash between rivals Deji Olatunji and Alex Wassabi was shockingly interrupted after a fan stormed into the ring on Saturday.

Footage of the incident quickly made the rounds on social media, with the main-event fight briefly halted during the second round due to the fan’s actions.

The fighters’ training teams scrambled to remove the intruder from the ring, with an object appearing to strike the fan on the back of the head.

The ring invader was then ejected from the squared circle like he was a contestant in the WWE Royal Rumble after being dumped over the top rope.

“Interrupting boxing fights now? Fans ruin everything,” one Twitter user wrote in response to the footage.

Another tweeted: “Well, that was about five seconds of fame.”

“The security threw him over the ropes like it was Royal Rumble,” a third fan said.

The ring announcer urged fans to calm down and claimed the headline fight could be called off if normality for the event at Wembley Arena did not resume.

But Deji vs Wassabi, which featured on the latest Showstar Boxing card, later resumed and was decided on points after five rounds.

Deji, who is the younger brother of famed YouTuber KSI, slipped to his third consecutive boxing defeat after a split-decision win was awarded to Wassabi.

The 25-year-old YouTube star has previously been stopped by Jake Paul and Vinnie Hacker in white-collar boxing matches.

Wassabi, 31, revealed his desire to return to the squared circle after his “tough” win over rival Deji.

“I did great, I didn’t know who was going to win at the end,” he said. “I didn’t realise how tough it was going to be.

“These people love their people and they showed it; I didn’t hear my name once.

“Deji, I just wanted to compete and if it wasn’t for you that dream wouldn’t have come true.

“I want to get back in... I don’t know when the next YouTube event is.”
