West Ham And Millwall Fans Clash During Boxing Fight

West Ham And Millwall Fans Clash During Boxing Fight

Most people like to go to boxing to watch professionals fight each other. However during Johnny Garton's fight against Gary Corcoran it was impossible not to be drawn to the brawl in the crowd between Millwall and West Ham fans.

On Saturday night Frank Warren put on a fight card at Brentwood Centre in Essex which was headlined by Anthony Yarde.

However the headlines weren't from the boxing that was taking place in the ring, no matter how good some of it, but instead it was the fighting outside of the ring.

Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran put on a great fight as the pair went hell for leather in a bout for the British welterweight title.

Garton was the winner, stopping the fight in the 11th round after handing out some big punishment, but the attention was taken away from the ring by a massive brawl outside the ring. Garton is a Millwall fan and tensions are believed to have boiled over due to his fandom with the club.

Frank Warren and officials had to warn people about their conduct and someone took to the mic to scream at fans shouting, "You came here to watch boxing so sit down!"

It must have been a distraction to both boxers as it continued during one of the rounds as well as through the mid round break.

It was a great night for Garton and certainly the fight of the night but it's a shame certain members of the crowd decided to ruin it.
