A GOLDEN GLOVES amateur tournament in Los Angeles devolved into chaos on Wednesday night as a vicious brawl erupted among spectators.

Witnesses claim some of the crowd took exception when a punch was thrown after the bell during one of the bouts, and things quickly turned sour.

Fights broke out, chairs were thrown and video footage even shows a woman hitting someone from behind with a chair.

Police were called to the scene but made no arrests and reports claim nobody was seriously injured. Incredibly, the tournament resumed after the fracas was over and the mess was cleared.
