The white-collar boxer was “really sad” after the event he was supposed to be participating in was called off due to a fight.

Johnny Marks was one of the people involved in the fight tonight at the Crowne Plaza in south Belfast, many of whom were meant to raise money for charity.

Johnny has been training to fight since January and created the JustGiving page to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

However, a Bangor man and dozens of others had to take off their gloves after violence erupted at a white-collar mixed martial arts event at the same venue on Saturday night.

Footage spread on social media and WhatsApp showing a large group of people in the Crowne Plaza parking lot, some of them involved in a violent confrontation.

“We wanted to fight today,” Johnny told Belfast Live. “Over forty people couldn’t fight today because of the selfish actions of yesterday’s crowd. People paid their hard-earned money to watch an event they could no longer attend.”

He added that it seems difficult to postpone the event due to the events of Saturday night.

In a statement, PSNI said: “On Saturday (April 9) at 7:25pm, South Belfast Police received a report of anti-social behavior involving several people in the Milltown Road area.

“As soon as the officers arrived, the crowd gathered in the parking lot, and there were no reports of injuries or complaints,” he added.

Crowne Plaza has been contacted for comment.
