Two bouncers stabbed in bar fight where Jeff Fraza was watching his Contender loss

Two bouncers were stabbed in a bar fight that broke out at a viewing party for The Contender 2 that Jeff Fraza attended. At River City Billiards in Haverhill, Mass., “fans started throwing their own blows, overturning tables and smashing bottles” after Jeff lost on-screen, the Boston Herald reports.

“Two bouncers who jumped into the fray were stabbed while a third was smashed over the head with a bottle,” according to the paper. One of the stabbed bouncers is still in the hospital; the man who attacked the third bouncer with the bottle was arrested.

“Fraza was at the bar when the violence erupted, but police are still investigating his involvement. The source added that cops are not eyeing Fraza in connection with the stabbings,” the Boston Herald reports. He was having a good time, however, “earlier in the night, smiling and double-fisting bottles of champagne.”
