Update: Other reports are claiming Shakur’s mother and members of his family got into it with security.
In middle of his press conference, Shakur Stevenson jumped off the stage, ran out of the media center because he heard his mom's voice outside. Security was giving her a hard time coming in. An abrupt and bizarre end to the presser. Never seen that before. #ValdezStevenson
