A crazed fan attempted to disrupt the Adonis Stevenson v Badou Jack live event on Saturday night as he tried to ENTER THE RING in Toronto.
Journalist Mike Coppinger, a long-time member of the boxing media circle stateside and beyond, posted a shocking video of the incident as it happened.
I’ve been covering boxing for at least eight years and I’ve never seen anything like this. Fan rushed the ring during Zewski-Luque and fight was stopped for a good five minutes while security tried to stop this mountain of a man. After a few slams and a few guards, fight on pic.twitter.com/ERTC7dWLW4

The patron, described by Coppinger as a ‘mountain of a man’ was restrained during the Mikael Zewski v Diego Luque fight – which was subsequently delayed.
A good five minutes elapsed before the fight could continue as a dumbfounded crowd came to terms with what they just witnessed.
