BBC BREAKFAST'S Naga Munchetty slammed Charlie Stayt for goading a guest with an 'unsafe' demand.
Naga, 47, and co-star Charlie, 60, interviewed a group lads from a boxing club, which has helped keep hundreds of kids away from crime.
Unfortunately the gym could be faced with closure as its running costs soar.
Jav Khaliq, who won the IBO welterweight title back in 2000, offers classes to around 100 people a week.
The hosts were joined by Jav along with Mohammed, Dwayne and Fidel from Nottingham.
Naga praised Jav for giving youngsters an alternative to being on the streets.

Jav explained the difficulties the club is facing, he said: "A couple of months ago we received an email that our rent would go up three times what it is right now.
"More than three times. The trust we rent off, rent off the City Council and have been told there is nothing that can happen, energy costs have gone up and we will have to pay £1100 a month more on top of what we pay, which we cannot manage."
Dwayne said he had been coming to the club for 12 years, first attending when he was 18-years-old.
He said: "This gym has given me a lot. Boxing has made me more positive.

"You can fall into certain lifestyle without places such as this, boxing has given me a place to go."
Presenter Charlie was keen to get a glimpse of their boxing skills and insisted: "At least one of you should go and punch that punch bag just so you can prove that you're actually doing it.
"Can someone just go and punch the punch bag for me?"
The guests looked uncomfortable and laughed off Charlie's request.
Naga then stepped in and said: "No! They haven't got gloves, keep your hands safe.
"Don't do that!"
After the segment, Charlie turned to Naga and said: "Do you know what, if we went back there in ten minutes it would be furiously busy with training."
An unimpressed Naga stated: "But they'd have gloves on."
She then raised her arm towards the camera and gestured: "They are hard to hit."
Charlie concluded: "Health and safety yes."
Coach Fidel told BBC Breakfast that many young people with various problems rely on the club.
"Boxing gives them discipline, gets rid of some of the aggression, gets the endorphins working and changes their lifestyle- it's enjoyable for them," Fidel said.
"We build up a good rapport for them and give them life skills."
Youngster Mohammed said he had been attending the club for six months and it has helped him stay away from trouble at school.
"I used to get into trouble – there used to be kids in my school who threatened me, saying they would do this and that."
Naga's latest scolding comes after she hit back at a cruel troll who slammed her for an on-air blunder.
The presenter was on the airwaves with her BBC Radio 5 Live show on Monday when she made the mistake.
TV favourite Naga fell victim to a minor mishap when she read the time incorrectly.
A listener was quick to criticise her and tweeted: "@TVNaga01 'The time is 12.20, good morning' #WorstOneYet”.
But BBC host Naga was not impressed and fired back, writing: "No – there has been worse. Thanks for listening. @bbc5live."
This isn't the first time that Naga has showed off her fiery side.
The TV star revealed she is "trying to control her temper" after "two horrendous tantrums".
She made the frank admission during her Radio 5 Live show while chatting to golfers Martine and Heather Gilks.
Naga is also a keen golfer and the trio spoke about their love of the sport.
She admitted: "I am trying to control my temper. I had a very bad temper tantrum yesterday.”
Moments later, she explained why she had got so annoyed the previous day.
She said: “I’ll tell you about this game I played yesterday, I played terribly.
"I had a horrendous temper tantrum, twice.
“But the company was so good… me and my partner have lost against these other two three times on the trot.”
