A new video showed up and coming professional boxer Shakur Stevenson brawl at a parking garage in Miami Beach in June 2018

A shocking video of two pro boxers involved in a gruesome exchange inside a Miami carpark has emerged.

The incident reportedly happened as American Stevenson, who has since turned professional and won each of his 10 fights, was out celebrating his 21st birthday in July of previous year in South Beach, along with fellow boxer David Grayton.

Grayton, after being pulled off the woman, can be seen hitting another woman in the face before joining Stevenson in attacking the man in the sweatshirt.

The two groups separate after Stevenson's initial punch, video shows. The male victim was left covered in blood and his eyes were almost swollen shut, the photos show.

Both of the men fled the scene before police arrived but were later arrested for battery at their hotel.

Stevenson had a cut on his lip and Grayton had cuts on his knuckles, the report said.

According to a report by United States sports site ESPN Miami police tracked Stevenson and Grayton down to a nearby hotel.

Initially both boxers were charged with misdemeanor battery, but according to Slater Scoops, the footage of the video could lead to upgraded felony charges.

Stevenson is now promoted by Bob Arum's Top Rank but he may find himself in difficulty getting a boxing license after this and potentially much more trouble than that.

A call seeking comment from Top Rank Boxing was not immediately returned Thursday.

Stevenson, a 2016 Olympic silver medalist originally from Newark, New Jersey, was celebrating his birthday at the time in South Beach.

The pair's next court date is reportedly September 27.

Stevenson is set to fight former world title challenger Christopher "Pitufo" Diaz on April 20 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, as part of the undercard to the Terence Crawoford vs. Amir Khan ESPN Pay-Per-View.
