Former UFC fighter Darren Till fights back after his first boxing fight

Darren Till’s boxing debut was marred by a post-fight brawl on Saturday night as the former UFC fighter earned the first win of his new career via technical knockout.

Till faced Mohammad Mutie in Dubai at Social Knockout 3, a fight that was scheduled to last four rounds. In the second round, Till and Mutie were trading blows when the British fighter hit Mutie in the back of the head.

The referee stopped the fight and then stopped it. Till was awarded the TKO victory because Mutie “didn’t want to continue,” the promoter said, according to MMA Fighting.

Mutie then started the fight after the bell. While he was being held, Mutie kicked Till. The fight broke out, with members of both sides trying to separate the two fighters.

“It’s a fight, you get hit,” Till said after the fight, via MMA Fighting. “If you don’t want to keep fighting, don’t be a fighter. He’s not a fighter. He’s not a real fighter. He’s a coward. And then, while I’m minding my own business, he comes and attacks me.”

“I’m really sorry. I’m not that guy. I’m a respectful guy. I love this sport. I love Dubai. I’ve been coming here since 2016, so I want to apologize, but I was there, minding my own business, and he came and attacked me with his team. I have to defend myself. I’m really sorry for that, guys.”
