BRUTAL footage appearing to show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty’s son threatening to bite off a rival’s ear in a traveller site brawl has emerged.
The fighter, believed to be John Doherty, is said to have sunk his teeth into a member of the Joyce family after he was knocked to the ground.
Shocking footage shows the pair raining savage blows on each other in front of screaming women and children.
The violent clash is only broken up when one of the fighters – thought to be Doherty – appears to bite his rival before chasing him into a trailer.
The chaotic scenes were uploaded to social media today and have been viewed more than 150,000 times.
Mobile video shows the man thought to be Doherty in a red vest confronting his rival in front of a baying mob of travellers on the site, which is believed to be in Manchester.
Young children can be heard screaming out in terror as the pair land explosive blows on each other.
One man yells out: “Take the children in. Get the children into the trailer.”
The fighter in the red vest unleashes a flurry of shots on his opponent – but the shirtless brawler manages to land a right hook on his chin.
But he then puts his rival in a headlock as several men from the crowd – said to include Paddy Doherty – rush to intervene, saying: “He’s biting his ear off”.
Joyce then walks away holding his ear into a nearby trailer but is followed by the other fighter.
In a video later posted online, Theady Joyce claimed victory, saying: “I put you down on your a*** in front of your daddy in your daddy’s site.”
His opponent responded, claiming he had “slipped” because he was “on the session for two days” with no sleep.
He challenged him to a rematch, saying: “I will fight you clean, dirty, weapons, however you want it we will have it.”
The Joyce and Doherty clans have been involved in a long-running feud – despite being related by blood.
In 2011, Paddy Doherty – who has also appeared in Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men – almost had his ear bitten off in a fight with cousin Johnny Joyce outside a PC World store in Manchester.
When the case went before magistrates, the two families were photographed brawling in the street outside the courthouse and eight men were arrested.
John Doherty was given a suspended eight-month jail sentence after admitting his part in the scrap.
In 2014 it was reported the clans clashed again in a 40-man machete brawl at a baby’s funeral.
Greater Manchester Police said it could find no record of the latest incident.
