Shocking footage filmed by a spectator of the fight between the Australian and Philippines basketball teams during a match yesterday (July 2) in Bulcan.

Tensions boiled over in the third quarter of the FIBA World Cup qualifying clash, with players and officials from both sides, plus a number of unruly fans, flooding the court in disgraceful scenes of violence.

Thirteen players were ejected from the match after the shameful fight that has shocked the sporting world.

The in-game brawl came with about four minutes to play in the third period, when the Boomers were leading 79-48. Chris Goulding was elbowed in the face, then shoulder-charged in the midsection. That led to Kickert throwing an elbow at the Philippines’ Roger Ray Pogoy, with both teams then getting engaged in a violent altercation.
