VIDEO: Colin Kaepernick gets loudly booed at Andre Ward fight in Oakland
Colin Kaepernick's not a popular guy in Oakland.
Forty-niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick might have a lot of fans in San Francisco, but apparently, he doesn't have many fans 10 miles away in Oakland.
Kaepernick was at Oracle Arena on Saturday night to attend a boxing match between undefeated middleweight Andre Ward and Englishman Patrick Smith -- a fight Ward won in the ninth round.
At some point during the fight, Kaepernick was interviewed and that's when the 9,016 fans in attendance started booing.
Because this is the internet, you know there's video.

Kaepernick probably would've been booed all night, if a certain NBA MVP hadn't showed up to save him.

Anyway, Kaepernick was clearly the most unpopular person in the building.

Colin Kaepernick is at the Andre Ward fight at Oracle Arena. He’s being roundly booed by the crowd during his interview with Sway.— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) June 21, 2015
The big question here? Who was booing Kaepernick. It's the Bay Area's own "chicken or egg" question.

Warriors star Stephen Curry was also at the fight and as you can read about here, the fans in Oakland seemed to enjoy his presence slightly more than Kaepernick's.
