Apparently the fans weren't altogether pleased with the result of the close fight between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana. Despite a very strong effort from Maidana, Mayweather took two judges' scorecards while one judge had the bout a draw.
Consequently, a riot broke out at the post-fight presser. Spectators took to Twitter to describe the mayhem.
Apparently there were people injured, trampled in an incident when folks were rushing from arena. #boxing #MayweatherMaidana

A few bystanders even reported that a gun was discharged at the scene.
Ridiculous scenes at the MGM Grand after the fight. Some guy starting shooting a gun and there was riot / stampede on the way out. Scary.
