On the show, Gooden spoke a bit about his boxing career, way back when.
“Yeah, I did boxing whilst I was at uni, which isn’t a good mix actually,” he said.
“As a result of that, I ended up kind of walking away from it. And again… not doing it with your with your friends necessarily, it was always a bit tough. But my mum hyperventilated at my second fight, I mean, that was never a good thing. We had the medics with my mom, rather than the fighters!”
“You know, that’s just like, this is the family… and I won that one!”
