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.

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.
