Sheriff's department shuts down illegal fight club operating in Hunts Point
An illegal fight club known as "Rumble in the Bronx" was shut down by the sheriff's department late Saturday.
Sheriffs busted the rumble at around 11:15 p.m. and found more than 200 people inside illegally drinking, smoking hookah and not wearing face masks.
The department tweeted out images showing large crowds inside a warehouse in Hunts Point.
Gates were set up for the fight along with a "Rumble in the Bronx" sign and gloves left on the ground.
Officials confiscated alcohol, two illegal loaded guns and a significant amount of marijuana.
The CEO and organizers of the club will have to pay $150,000 in violations.
They are being charged with multiple crimes including unlawful assembly, illegal organization of a combative sport and violation of the state's emergency executive order.
On the fight club's Instagram page, they posted a couple of weeks ago that their business provides food and shelter to their families and children. They also say they work to educate the youth on gun violence.
News 12 reached out to the fight club and is waiting to hear back.
