A video of a brawl in a Lincoln student bar after Tyson Fury's heavyweight boxing match against Oleksandr Usyk has emerged. The footage shows multiple people involved in a punch-up at Towers bar on Brayford Wharf, Lincoln, during the early hours of Sunday, May 19.

Police say they received a call from a member of the public reporting that people were fighting just before 12.45am but the incident "appeared to diffuse itself" while the caller was on the line. Officers say that no crime was recorded.

The brawl is believed to have started after the undisputed heavyweight title fight between Fury and Usyk, which finished at around 12.30am UK time and was being shown at the student bar. The University of Lincoln Student's Union, who run Towers bar, declined to comment on the incident.
