It should have been a cozy evening at the Barclays Center in New York when Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero met, but after the boxing match, panic spread.

‘I’ve just been to the Barclays Center and suddenly I heard people shouting. I saw people running, and then some shouted at us that someone was shooting. We had to squeeze into a room and close the door.

‘I was so fucking petrified,’ the Japanese tennis star writes Twitter.

Police in New York on Sunday in the middle of the day Danish time denied that a shot was fired.

‘After investigating the incident at the Barclays Center this morning, we determined that no shots were fired,’ they write on Twitter.

Police tell the Washington Post that ‘a loud noise’ made people flee. Ten people suffered minor injuries and came to the hospital for treatment.
