Former English champion Tyler Goodjohn explains why he quit traditional boxing aged just 26 and now fights bareknuckle for BKB and has sex with his fiancee on the OnlyFans platform
I knew Tyler Goodjohn as a likeable and talented boxer, one who captured an English title and perennially starred in entertaining battles. We have followed each other on Twitter for longer than I can recall and this social media relationship survived his move into bareknuckle boxing, not really my cup of tea but an arena in which he has enjoyed success, currently holding the BKB featherweight belt. Then, a month or two ago, Goodjohn’s Twitter feed became rather penis-heavy and I’m not referring to any trolls he may have retweeted.
Goodjohn had actually branched out into the adult industry, inspired by his fiancee Alessa Savage and now has his own popular page on OnlyFans, an adult platform more commonly associated with females. Rather than repulsed, I was intrigued by the development and, having conducted the interview you can watch below, was reassured that the modest, down-to-earth man I knew was still there.
"BKB was being shown on Television X," Goodjohn explained. "I went to a show just as a fan and Alessa was one of the walk-on girls. We got talking and we ended up just not leaving each other alone.
"For me and her, we’d spoke about it a lot, we’re both went into this as a couple, we’re both comfortable with it and we’re earning good money out of it.
"At the end of the day, I’m a performer. I love people watching me whatever I do. We both love it, we like that people are watching us, basically worshipping us. My mum and dad are both comfortable with it and I don’t see how it’s hurting anyone."
