The pair were seen throwing punches and throwing each other around the moving train, before the man who was dressed in black was slammed against the door.
A woman. who was dressed in white, attempts to stop the fight, but fails even though she appears to know the man in grey.
It is believed she is the girlfriend of one of them, according to Dimsum Daily.
Other passengers were seen getting up as one made their way to inform the driver.
The man in black shouted to his opponent to put his face mask back on after the commotion settled down.

The pair slow down their blows before the man in grey gives a final kick and the woman tells him “enough”.
The fighter returns the man in grey’s mask, by throwing it on the deck and yelling at him: “Your mask” plus some choice words.
At the next stop MTR boarded the carriage to investigate the situation.
One shocked user commented: “It’s a pity for you, Hong Kong people.
“You’re so powerful that you’re fighting with each other without any reason.
“It’s a rare phenomenon in a civilized society. It’s like a third world war.”
Another added: “Hong Kong people just love to watch people fight.’
A third wrote: “Enthusiastic citizens, busy reminding the public to wear masks even after the pandemic is over.”
