Anthony Joshua is considered to be a gentleman in the sport. However, even the sanest can lose their temper. A former boxer turned YouTuber Tyan Booth shed light on a recent incident with the current unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.
Tyan Booth revealed an incident that took place at Joshua’s gym. He was involved in an ugly altercation with the British boxer.
Booth said, “It’s because I have been doing videos for two years, talking off all kinds of stuff. Most of the time when I do videos, I’ve had a few glasses of wine. So I talk a lot of s***t. I forget what I said most of the time. So when I went to Joshua’s gym, he started walking up to me… He came up to me and said to me, ‘What did you say about me in the video?’ so I said, ‘What did I say?’ Then he said, ‘Get out of my gym.’”
Booth reveals what happened in the gym with Anthony Joshua
Tyan Booth is a former boxer who competed in the middleweight and light-heavyweight division. He had a lackluster boxing career, winning 12 bouts in his 28 professional fights. Now, Booth uses YouTube as a platform to share his thoughts on the boxing world. Boxing News TV has become a primary source for many boxing fans for some fun commentary about the upcoming match-ups. However, this has often gotten Booth into a lot of trouble.
He said, “I didn’t just run out straight away. I wanted to keep a little bit of pride, and a bit of dignity. I stood there for about 10 seconds. Then I said, “I will f*** off.” Of course, I wanted him to hit to so that I could get compensation…If I got murdered by Joshua, that would go viral. I don’t want to be dead. Joshua is a big guy.”
It’s hard not to agree with Tyan Booth. You wouldn’t want to pick a fight with the heavyweight champion of the world. Additionally, Booth is also right when he says it’s the kind of content that will sell. As a YouTuber, Booth is well aware that had he gotten hit by Joshua, it would have made him famous.
