He was told to go away after handing it over, with the individual throwing it back in his face. Butlin, 47, responded by telling the man to “get his hands off” him. He then warned an arrest warrant would come next before telling the individual: “I’m not here to fight you. I’m not a fighter mate.”
Butlin was then threatened with violence before advising the man to read the letter and heed his warning. The former boxer once fought Joshua – in an October 2013 clash at the Moterpoint Arena in Sheffield. AJ stopped him in the second round with Butler hanging up his gloves in 2016.
He also faced Derek Chisora twice between 2008-09, with Del Boy winning both of the York Hall bouts on points. Butlin was even bitten by Chisora during their second showdown, with the Rutland fighter screaming out in agony.
