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 going on to hang 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 Rutland fighter screaming out in agony.


The ref didn’t spot the incident, so Chisora got away with it on the night. But he was later fined £2,500 and slapped with a four-month ban.

Butlin had 41 professional fights, winning just 16 while losing 24 – one ended in a draw.

Mrs Usyk is the only happy person that the undisputed fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk was postponed
