Video of an irate man going on a misogynist rant in an NYC bagel shop recently went viral.
The internet labeled him "Bagel Boss Guy" and turned him into a meme almost instantaneously.
But instead of shying away from his infamy, the Bagel Guy seems to be leaning into it.
The video of Bagel Boss Guy ranting before eventually being tackled to the ground has been remixed and viewed by millions of people.

Now, the Bagel Boss Guy, also known as Long Islander Chris Morgan, signed a contract with fight promoter Damon Feldman to compete in a celebrity boxing match on September 7 in Atlantic City.

He's planning to go up against "other viral celebrities."
@nypost unless “other viral celebrities” is code for “his own deeply rooted personal issues and misogyny” this probably won’t end well— Brazzers (@Brazzers)1563294816.0

The Bagel Guy, who stands at five feet tall, isn't worried about the viral sensation of "Hide yo kids, hide yo wife" fame:
"I'm just naturally tough — I'll whoop his ass. If he thinks he's gonna win, fuggedaboutit!"
@nypost Has he tried therapy for his obvious complex stemming from from crippling feelings of inadequacy?— Allison Floyd (@Allison Floyd)1563305177.0
Asked by TMZ about his fighting skills, Morgan said his greatest talent was "getting possessed," an ability the entire world witnessed when he decried women who wouldn't date him because of his height:
"Everywhere I go I get the same f–king smirk with the biting lip."
