Chris Morgan, who made headlines with his viral Bagel Boss meltdown in Bay Shore last month, appeared on the Howard Stern show spoiling for a fight.
The 45-year-old appeared on the show with celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman to challenge Stern staffer Shuli Egar to a match.  Egar turned him down, but later left the door open to a boxing battle if he was paid up front.  Egar later revealed on the show that he had upped his asking price to a cool $20,000.  
Morgan became an overnight sensation on news outlets and social media with his outburst at Bagel Boss.

The meltdown was highlighted by one memorable phrase: "You're not God, or my father."
Morgan, who is from Massapequa, told News 12 that he lost his cool after a woman behind the counter made fun of his size.
“She's doing this with her mouth, looking at people, smirking, and I started to feel like I was being maligned, made felt like I was less of a person,” he said. “I'm tired of women using me, abusing me, lying to my face, tell me you like me on dates and then you take my money, cut me off, say I'm too short when you're my height," he told News 12.
