The trouble started at around 10.30pm when a fight had just finished in the ring.

There were reports a woman was knocked out during the melee inside the conference centre.

In the footage some of the crowd can be seen throwing chairs and a woman appears to be having a fist fight with a man.

Security tried to stop the scrap along with the host, who was standing in the ring, but they were unable to.

‘We are here for boxing tonight and some of you have just ruined it,’ the host said.

‘It has been spoilt by you guys. We cannot continue like this… you are behaving like children. You are spoiling it for any other boxing event here in Leeds. It is such a shame.

‘If you don’t want to be in here to watch the boxing f**k off.

‘I have worked in boxing for 40 years, this is absolutely f*****g disgusting.’
