POLICE were called to reports of fighting in the street after a city boxing event but no arrests were made and nobody was seriously injured in the disorder.

The reported incident of 'disorder' happened in Sherriff Street in Worcester on Saturday evening (November 11) after a boxing event nearby.

However, the show's organisers have stressed there was no trouble at the event venue or during the boxing event itself where the safety of spectators was described as 'paramount'.

West Mercia Police received a report of '10 people fighting in the street' outside where the boxing event took place. 

When officers arrived, there was no evidence of a fight and no arrests although a woman was treated for a potential injury to her foot which the boxing show's organiser said was unrelated to the disorder.

A spokesperson for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said they did receive a call but, shortly afterwards, received a second call to stand them down as they were 'no longer required'.

A spokesperson for West Mercia Police said: "We were called to reports of a public order on Sherriff Street in Worcester around 11.05pm on Saturday, November 11.

"When officers arrived on scene, crowds had already started dispersing. No one was arrested or seriously injured."

Jon DP Shaw, who organised the show, said the event went 'absolutely perfectly' and said there was some arguing he said was nothing to do with the show and that nobody was assaulted at the show.

"There was an incident after the boxing had concluded outside the jurisdiction of the boxing gym," he said.

He added: "TakeOver Promotions successfully put on its biggest and best boxing show to date.

"TOP shows gives local boxers a professionally organised platform to showcase their boxing skills.

"On the evening we had four championship fights. With boxers from eight years old right the way up to seniors all showcasing their boxing skills.

"We pride ourselves on bringing a high level boxing promotion to the local area. We also expanded to give an online pay per view platform for those unable to attend in person.

"Fighter and spectator safety is paramount with TOP. This is why we work closely with the council.

"All licensing requests are always adhered to and pride is taken when ensuring that everything is done by the book.

"We will continue to work closely with all the governing bodies involved to ensure all future events are also a success.

"We appreciate everyone that came and enjoyed the event. We look forwards to seeing you all next year for TOP 006."
