Your question is a bit vague and does not clarify for what you are seeking coverage, Injury or Property Damage. You may want to contact your insurance agent for coverage clarification.

Your home insurance policy does not provide coverage for illegal or criminal acts.

Your Homeowners Insurance Policy typically provides Property Hazard insurance that covers certain losses resulting from covered perils such as fire, lightning, wind, hail, theft, vandalism, etc.

Many Homeowners Insurance polices also provide liability coverage for certain accidental injuries to others for which you are legally liable along with legal defense for those liabilities. A fight would likely not be considered accidental.

A Homeowners policy will also often have a small amount of medical coverage for injuries sustained by the insured in or around the home.

If Someone sues you as a result of an injury sustained on your property or in your home you should forward the notice of suit to your insurer for coverage and legal defense consideration.

It really just depends on the type of home insurance policy you bought and whether or not your liability covers losses that result from your choice of pet ownership. Not all policies are the same

The best source for answers about your policies coverage will come from contacting your Insurance Agent or your insurance company. You can generally find the phone number to contact them on your policy or on one of your mailed statements.

Bear in mind that Homeowner insurance is a type of "Hazard Insurance Policy that covers the named insured from financial losses that result from the perils or Hazards listed on the policy terms.

Liability coverage is often included in a home insurance policy that protects the owner from certain liabilities incidental to home ownership. Some policies automatically exclude any and all damages that result from our choice of pets while others may extend liability coverage for certain kinds of pets.

Of course not. This is an illegal activity and therefore all illegal activity is excluded under the terms of the policy.
