Here is what Booker said about FOX Sports host/Red Sox legend David Ortiz ripping him on TV in recent weeks:
“It’s been like this since I was a kid. There are a lot of bullies out there that want to jump on people when they think you are down. They feel like you can’t defend yourself. Maybe it’s because I wear a suit all the time. But that’s why normally when I’m on the show, I normally try to show the “guns”. I normally try to show if I’m fit, if I’m in shape, if I’ve been training right before we started here tonight. I definitely hit the biceps, triceps and the abs. Most people my age are not thinking about that stuff. I’m always prepared. David Ortiz, man, he may be able to hit a baseball, but I will stretch David Ortiz in a heartbeat and that’s on the real. This is a shoot. This is not a spoiler or anything like that. David Ortiz, I know you are probably looking at this video right now and you are saying, wow, the shoulders on this young man. Yea, because I’ve been in the gym staying in shape and training. I haven’t been sitting on the sofa sipping on a gallon of milk and eating a bag of donuts. I’m in the gym training every day because I’ve got a destiny and what that destiny is, one only knows. So get in my way. Daniel Cormier, I gave you my props. But, I’m from the streets. I’m old G. I will hurt you sucka, I will do something to you if you confront me so make sure you keep the six foot rule whenever you come in contact with Booker T. Ortiz on the other hand, I know you ain’t going to bust a grape, so you can step into the three feet room.”
