The incident occurred after Sudario finished Miyamoto with a promotional record breaking knockout.

Referee Ryogaku Wada waved off the fight in 6 seconds after Sudario landed a clean right hand to Miyamoto’s jaw. Sudario refused to stop attacking after the official stoppage. Sudario’s corner, Enson Inoue entered the ring and helped restrain Sudario, whereupon Miyamoto’s corner Noboru Uchida entered the ring and pushed Sudario. Inoue then responded by aggressively pushing Uchida and putting his hand on his neck. It was at this point that the officials were able to fully intervene.
