KASH ALI was showered in beer and confronted by a furious thug after biting David Price during their heavyweight bout last night.
The Birmingham boxer, 27, was hurriedly rushed back to the dressing room from the ring by security but could not escape the livid Liverpool crowd.
Supporters at the M&S Bank Arena – who were cheering for Liverpudlian Price – did not hold back as they launched cups at the shamed Ali as he and the five security guards with him ducked for cover.
And in videos circulated on social media, one bald man in a red top had to be forcibly held back after trying to vent his anger.
Ali was disqualified from the all-British fight after appearing to bite his opponent four times, including on the shoulder and stomach.
A bite mark was clearly visible on Price’s torso and Ali – who was also docked a point earlier in the fight for punching to the back of the head – is almost certain to face severe punishment for his outrageous attack.
The British Boxing Board of Control immediately announced his purse has been withheld.
Ali apologised after the fight, calling his actions in the ring “ridiculous”.
It was a stupid thing what I did, ridiculous. There’s no excuses for it.
He told iFL TV: “I thought it was a good fight, I had him hurt in the fifth, I could’ve stopped him, I wrestled him down and it was a stupid thing what I did, ridiculous.
“There’s no excuses for it, I think just the build up to the fight, it was my first time I’ve boxed on the big stage, I was so pumped up, I was ready to fight, the street stupid mentality just kicked in it was stupid.”
A shocked Price called Ali an “animal” after the contest.
The Liverpudlian heavyweight said: “I hurt him to the body just before the final bite he took.
“He did a couple early on and I thought he had lost his head completely.

“He said he wanted a rematch, but I don’t want to share a ring with an animal like that again.
“The main thing is that I move forward. I will take any win, and now we move on.”
The result extended Price’s record to 24 wins and six defeats and was a first defeat of Ali’s 16-fight career.
