BOXING rivals Jermall Charlo and David Benavidez were forced apart after a ringside row.

The unbeaten American pair were in Texas to watch Errol Spence Jr's unification fight with Yordenis Ugas.

But footage captured inside the AT&T Stadium showed the pair rowing and having to be pulled apart.

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza was even seen holding back WBC middleweight champion Charlo, 31.

Benavidez, 24, former super-middleweight title holder, was also filmed being restrained.

The two were in talks to fight while both campaigning to box Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, 31.

It is not determined what fulled tempers to boil over in Arlington but Benavidez's dad was also involved.

Later on in the night, Charlo's training partner Spence, 32, went on to stop Ugas, 35, in ten rounds.

He claimed the Cuban's WBA belt, adding to the WBC and IBF versions he brought into the bout.

Spence then called out Terence Crawford, 34, to an undisputed super-fight.
