VIDEO: Kaepernick Booed During Appearance At Oakland Boxing Match

OAKLAND (CBS) - With Frank Gore gone, Colin Kaepernick is now clearly the face of the San Francisco 49ers offense. It appears that face is not one that Oakland sports fans want to see.

Kaepernick was at Oracle Arena on Saturday night to attend a boxing match between gold medalist and Oakland native Andre Ward and Englishman Patrick Smith -- a fight Ward won in the ninth round.

At some point during the fight, Kaepernick was interviewed (and shown on the big screen) and that's when the 9,016 fans in attendance started booing, CBS Sports reports.

As it turns out, someone did get video of the event.

As you can see at the end of the video, an appearance by NBA MVP Stephen Curry turned the crowd around.

Ward is now 28-0 in his professional career.
