Default Trainer question

Alright lads, bit of a strange question for you here.

I caught a bit of one of these customs tv shows about some airport. Think it was called nothing to declare. Anyway there was this lad that got pulled up and searched. he was a bit pissed and had a load of cash and supplement pills in his bag. It said on the show he was a boxer but he was very familiar looking. I could swear I have seen this lad in someones corner for a big fight (maybe even recently) I know its a slightly weird question but could anyone shed any light on this? It's bugging the shit out of me not being able to place the face

Cheers

Half pissed and very agitated.

He was giving them loads of gob. He said he always gets stopped but the lads at customs assured him it was all random or whatever. He kept telling them to **** this and **** that. He was getting nicely steamed up and indignant until they found his stash of pills (turned out to be basic supplements) and that he had more than the 10k (I think) cash you are allowed to bring in. He calmed down a bit then

They let him through eventually but he just generally came across as a bit of a hot headed idiot who seems like he would normally use his size to intimidate people to get his own way

Could be very wrong here, but I thought he had been carrying a gun when apprehended as well? Any sign of any 'tools' in the footage?
