Are fights between derby queens real or staged?

My 15 year old son was adopted from Myanmar (Burma).  We watched "Birds of Pray" and he saw a sport he had ever seen before.  The idea of women on roller skates beating each other up was a bit strange to him.  He asked me if in a real (not movie) derby do they really fight.  I told him I think it is all for show.

Update:

Keep in mind that we have a lot of sports that are more or less uniquely American that he has never seen. In his country they pretty much only have football (soccer), Cricket, Rugby, and chicken fighting.
