Newcastle drinkers fly into mass street brawl moments after Anthony Joshua fight

This is the shocking moment an ugly brawl breaks out in Newcastle after Anthony Joshua regains his heavyweight boxing crown.

A group of men stop traffic as they throw punches on Grainger Street on Saturday night.

A huge crowd of onlookers laugh and chant Joshua's name as the fight unfolds in the middle of a road amid shouts of 'go on' and 'get to him'.

The clip has been shared thousands of times on Facebook, with some saying it 'put Newcastle to shame'.

'Where is the Christmas spirit,' asked one social media user, while another branded the group 'numpties'.

The bust-up is understood to have come shortly after the British boxer reclaimed his world heavyweight titles.

The footage, which police are aware of, shows a group of drinkers turn to fighters as they throw punches and left some brawlers on the floor.

In the background, spectators can be heard singing Joshua's name to the tune of White Stripe's 'Seven Nation Army' before the scrap fizzles out.

A Northumbria Police spokesperson said officers attended after first receiving a report of a fight on Bigg Market just after 10.20pm.

It is believed to have moved over to Grainger Street.

The force added: 'At the time police arrived, people were dispersing and no complaints were received.

'No arrests were made.'
