TORONTO -- A fight on the undercard of the Adonis Stevenson-Badou Jack boxing card at the Air Canada Centre was briefly interrupted Saturday night when a man tried to force his way into the ring.
He was overpowered at one corner of the ring and taken away. Social media footage showed him hanging onto the bottom rope as an Ontario boxing commission official tried to pry his hands away. Co-promoter Lee Baxter joined others in dragging the man forcefully to the floor.
The incident happened in the eighth round of the welterweight bout between Mikael Zewski and Diego Gonzalez Luque.
In the main event, light heavyweight world titleholder Stevenson faced Jack in a 12-round bout.
