A Sydenham pub is having its licence reviewed after claims 20 boozed-up boxing fans watching the Mayweather versus Pacquiao fight started brawling amongst themselves during a lock-in.

Police are demanding The Bell’s landlady is removed from her post following the violent scenes early on May 3.

In a report submitted to Wednesday’s licensing review, police say they were called at 5.50am when trouble broke out following the big name heavyweight bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Sergeant Matthew McGrath said, when officers arrived, broken glass was strewn across the Bell Green boozer’s floor, while 30 people stood around inside, some still glugging bottles of beer.

He wrote: "There were bottles of beer as well as customers in possession of glasses of beer. The two television screen were showing the highlights of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight which had just recently finished. 

"Many of the customers were clearly drunk."

According to police, landlady Joy Nelson happily admitted: "We had a lock-in to let the locals watch the fight."

Sgt McGrath said Mrs Nelson then became "quite agitated and argumentative" and, in the following days, communication broke down.

Police are now calling for Mrs Nelson to go, citing her "complete lack of responsibility" and refusal to accept that the extra boozing time was the main cause of her customers’ drunkenness.

And the Met have also raised incidents dating back two years before the ill-fated illicit lock-in, including a fight between 30 people and a woman who was bottled, severing her temporal artery.

- News Shopper is awaiting a response from Ms Nelson.
