LAS VEGAS -- Officials the MGM Grand are looking into a post-fight incident involving dozens of fans following Saturday night's Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana championship fight.

Scott Ghertner, a spokesman for the MGM Grand says the hotel expects to have more information and a statement on Sunday about what happened shortly after fans started to leave the arena.

Yahoo Sports, citing a spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Fire Department, said between 20 and 40 people had been injured in what may have been a stampede to get away from a fight with several taken to local hospitals. Calls to emergency officials by USA TODAY Sports were not immediately returned.

According to Yahoo, fan Dulce Castillo said her 6-year-old son, Braulio, was being taken to the hospital after being trampled.

"I just [felt] like the people [were] over me and I am scared and I am screaming very hard," Castillo told the website. "I said to my brother, 'Help me, help me, please.' My son is with people (on top of him). I thought that we were dying, really."

More than 16,000 fans were in the arena.

Yahoo said that former WBA super bantamweight champion Clarence "Bones" Adams and a friend assisted in pulling spectators out of the crush and to safety.

"All of a sudden we heard a loud rumble and people were falling," Adams told the website. "There was no gun shot. But there was nothing that could be done with the people in here. They were all getting hurt. A little kid got trampled on, all the tables were getting turned."
