SHAKUR STEVENSON rushed out of his post-fight press conference towards a huge brawl to “aid” his mother, who was “attacked”.
Stevenson picked up the biggest ever victory of his young boxing career over Oscar Valdez via unanimous decision on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The American boxer retained the WBO super featherweight title and won the WBC as well as The Ring’s vacant super featherweight belts.
The 24-year-old then faced questions by the media at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and during his final answer he suddenly looked worried by unrest to his left where his mother reportedly was.
Stevenson put his titles down and sped towards a huge commotion in another room where footage showed a massive brawl erupted.
According to ESPN boxing insider Mike Coppinger, two women are accused of “attacking” the Olympian’s mother during the conference.

Coppinger tweeted: Apparently two women are accused of attacking Shakur Stevenson’s mother, which abuptly [sic] concluded the news conference when Shakur rushed to her aid.
“Was unclear what was happening in real time.”
Reports suggest Stevenson and his family were shut inside a room while security personnel calmed the situation until the scene was cleared.
