"You came here to watch boxing! Now sit down!" - So roared the MC as crowd trouble marred this evening's card of fights at the Brentwood Centre.
Occurring during an undercard bout between Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran, everyone's attention was quickly drawn from the action in the ring events that were developing in the crowd.
When even the show's promoter @frankwarren_tv is turning away from the action in the ring, to watch, you know things have gone wrong. MC not helping matters trying to defuse the situation either.

Although this video does not display the events within the crowd itself, the frustrated instructions being directed toward those engaging in the crowd trouble is clear to hear.
As captured shortly afterward from outside the venue that night, the scenes gave cause for a serious looking collection of security figures emerged.

A fight that was eventually won by Garton, Frank Warren's Twitter account didn't appear keen to reference the seemingly unavoidable question of the crowd trouble.

Such crowd trouble has been an evident feature of a recent Frank Warren card on BT Sport. During Tyson Fury's June 9 comeback bout against Sefer Seferi in the Manchester Arena, viewers - not to mention Fury himself - were perplexed to see members of the crowd brawling as the bout was underway.
