Bloodied Man Pulls Out Axe During Wild Brawl At Youth Boxing Event

**Warning: Graphic Images**

Four people were rushed to hospital after a wild brawl involving chairs, an axe and a plastic basket broke out at a junior boxing championship event in England.

Teenage competitors were forced to flee after dozens of chairs were sent flying across the room during the Boxing Youth Championships in Coventry over the weekend.

Footage posted on social media shows one man covered in blood wielding an axe, while another is seen using a fire extinguisher to spray at a crowd of people.

Warwickshire Police were called to the scene after receiving reports of the out-of-control brawl.

Four people were hospitalised and others sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The venue was set to continue over a three-day period with the opportunity for teens to compete for a national title.

England Boxing confirmed in a tweet posted on Sunday that there will be 'no further boxing this weekend'.

Thousands of users took to social media to express their outrage.

"Seen a few more videos and one bloke has an axe!! Who takes an axe to a boxing show. These families need banning from the boxing game #shameful", one user wrote. 

"This is awful. What an embarrassment", another said.

No arrests have been made.
