A cursory look through the gunshot area located referee Barnor with what looked like a foreign pistol daring the angry youth to come forward.

This resulted in the throwing and swinging of chairs and other missiles at anyone.

Barnor was eventually pulled out of the action by some officials of the Ghana Boxing Authority as other fans deserted the ringside.

The only person left was the clerk of scales, the bellman and a few other officials who appeared to be jotting down empirical evidence on what had transpired.

Roger Barnor had taken refuge in one of the media centers where the lighting and music were being provided for the event.

Soon, he was spotted by some of the angry fans who advanced in a bid to confront him but were prevailed upon to stop.

The last officials at the ringside then walked out of shot, signalling the official end of the event.

Moments after, some policemen walked in to verify the news they had heard.

Barnor went down again to engage the police in conversation and walked them out of the ringside.

The debacle left behind broken chairs and tables.

There was no report of immediate casualty.
