BRUSSELS – Armenians and Chechens ended up fighting after a boxing match in Mechelen in which an Armenian had won a match from a Chechen. An 18-year-old Armenian was stabbed in the side with a knife.

The Chechens fled after the police was alerted. Half an hour later one of them was found severely bleeding on the Koningin Astridlaan in Mechelen. It turned out to be a 20-year-old Chechen who probably got stabbed by the Armenians.

He was taken to hospital in critical condition. The public prosecution office in Mechelen has requested an examining judge to investigate the matter.
