Dozens Hospitalized From Stampede After Mayweather-Maidana Fight

(AllHipHop News) Floyd “Money” Mayweather left the MGM Grand Garden Arena the victor in his bout against Marcos Maidana Saturday night, but according to reports numerous spectators left the event as victims of a stampede that broke out at the casino.

The Las Vegas Fire Department told Yahoo Sports that 20-40 people were injured from the melee that apparently began when fans tried to leave the arena through a small passageway. An estimated 300-400 people began rushing through the space causing others to be trampled.

The Las Vegas Sun reports an eyewitness said  “five or six” fights broke out with Metro Police, and another two security guards were hurt.

There were rumors that a gun being fired caused the massive rush to exit the venue, but investigators claim those reports cannot be corroborated. MGM is excepted to release a statement about the post-fight stampede today.
