A member of Hughie Fury’s disgruntled entourage swiped Joseph Parker’s WBO heavyweight belt as the New Zealander celebrated his majority victory.
Fury, 23, suffered a points reverse in his first world title shot on Saturday night, and along with his team, was shocked to hear what seemed to be harsh scorecards announced.
Parker retained his crown 118-110 with two ringside officials, although WBN saw the contest 8-4 in favour of the mandatory challenger.

Cousin Tyson was outraged when coming to terms with Hughie’s defeat, whilst a family member took things a little further by taking Parker’s strap as he posed for pictures.
A rematch between the pair is highly unlikely to happen as Parker is already earmarked to defend against the winner of Tony Bellew v David Haye II before unifying with Anthony Joshua.
