Petit vs. Kasmi Ends in Violence After Riot Erupts - Video

By Per Ake Persson

The Main Event 5 staged by MK Event headed by Malamine Koné went ahead last night at the Palais de Marcel Cerdan in Levallois Perret.

All went well until the lightweight fight between Marvin Petit and Samir Kasmi with the WBA Continental title at stake.

Reports vary but there appears to have been turmoil between fans even before the fight and while Petit and Kasmi were fighting in the ring - and then an almost full scale riot erupted outside of the ropes.

Local police had to be called in, the arena evacuated and Petit vs Kasmi was declared a No Contest. The fighting continued outside of the venue but luckily no-one appears to have been seriously injured.

[QUOTE=Motorcity Cobra;18426581]How easy do you think it is to get verification from Yemen? Boxrec is basically going on an honor system with these fighters from these underdeveloped countries. Pretty sure their official record keeping isn't as organized as the US[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=OctoberRed;18426382]I NEVER trust Boxrec. They take rumors from websites and post fights to their schedule that are never finalized, never sourcing the information either, and then remove the info when the fight falls out. You would think a "credible" source…

[QUOTE=Evil_Meat;18426552]To add to that, boxrec has a completely fake person like Ali Raymi posted, with a completely fake record. They don't verify sh1t. Who knows how many more boxers on there never even existed lol.[/QUOTE] How easy do you think…
