In the clip, shared by Twitter (X) user StHonorable, Touch reminisced about his famous in-studio interview with boxing champ, Floyd Mayweather.

Touch revealed that before his interview, he was told to ask Floyd to wait so management could take pictures with him, to which Touch refused, considering Floyd's security protocol.

After the interview, the radio presenter says he was informed that then-SABC-CEO, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, was on his way for pictures with Money Mayweather, but Touch couldn't keep the athlete long enough.

This, according to Touch, led to an altercation with his superiors and, ultimately, his suspension, all in front of his colleagues:
