“But Adolphe stayed in the arena. He saw my mum and she said: ‘You’re a dirty fighter.’ He threw a drink over her and went to pull her hair before security got him out.

“He is crazy. There is something wrong with him. You can’t behave like that and be a professional sportsman.

“He needs to be banned. He is a disgrace.”

The Board have confirmed they are investigating the incident. Adolphe’s pay was withheld and Robert Smith, General Secretary of the Board, says he is waiting for eyewitness accounts before deciding what action to take.

The scheduled eight-round fight – a good step up for the unbeaten Adolphe – was shaping up well before the premature ending.

“It was going to be a good, technical fight,” said McIntosh, a skilled operator from the Carl Greaves’ stable.

“But I did notice him breathing heavily inside the opening minute. I thought to myself: ‘He’s panicking’ and then I hit him with a left hook that I thought hurt him.

“I remember the referee shouting: ‘Break’ once, maybe twice, a few seconds later. He was behind me, so I turned to reset myself and that’s the last thing I can remember.

“He hit me when I was turning round – and I’m glad he didn’t get away with it.

“If he had got away with that, it would have disheartened me, but it hasn’t knocked me back.”
