Since he opened the gym, Chambers has always had a âno copsâ or military personnel policy.
âThis is a man who refers to police officers as âmodern day slave catchers,â he refers to us as âthe henchmen of the empireâ and an âoccupying force,ââ LeFever told FOX Businessâ Liz MacDonald of âRisk & Reward.â
LeFever believes that if Chambers accepts the fight, they will be one step closer to overcoming their differences.
âBeing that myself and Mr.Chambers are never going to walk away from a debate seeing eye to eye. I kind of want to prove that it doesnât matter what he believes and it doesnât matter what I believe, we can come together, we can punch each other in the face a couple of times and when all is said and done, I can hug the guy,â he said.
