Viral sensation “Bagel Boss Guy,” also known as Chris Morgan, is going from spouting off inside Long Island restaurants to getting in the boxing ring.
After repeatedly expressing a desire to face off against a celebrity in the squared circle, Morgan will get his wish in a September bout versus former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City.
Adding to the mad-libs-ness of the fight, former “Jackass” star Bam Margera will serve as referee.
The fight was originally reported by TMZ.
“ITS ON!!!,” Morgan wrote, using poor punctuation, on Instagram Monday. “I have no doubts that I will knock this f---er out. Buy your tickets now!”

Morgan reportedly signed with fight promoter Damon Feldman’s Celebrity Boxing after his rant about being short and dating in the 21st century went viral. The two appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show last week to promote their partnership.
Dykstra –– who spent who helped the Mets win the 1986 World Series in a 13-year career with the Mets and Phillies –– reacted to Morgan’s original viral video in a July Twitter post.
