Former professional boxer Yusaf Mack has been caught on film attacking a man who he said made several homophobic attacks against him online.Β 

According to TMZ, Mack said the harrassment had been going on for some time, and he retaliated in a barber shop in Philadelphia. TMZ also posted a video of the incident (warning: violent images):

Per the report, witnesses said Mack assaulted the man while he was getting his hair washed. Paramedics were called to the scene.

The former IBF super middleweight champion told TMZ he had no regrets, while the victim has already taken to social media to make new homophobic comments. He also said the two would meet again:Β "Me and him gonna fight again."

As reported by WTFX, Mack came out as gay in 2015, a year after fighting his last bout as a professional, a loss to Cory Cummings. The 37-year-old went 31-8-2 in his career, fighting the likes of Carl Froch and Daniel Judah.
