On the night the 1-by-1 clip went viral online, Goh admitted he couldn’t sleep well, not due to joy from the unexpected fame, but from the turmoil that ensued.

Just as he thought he could take a break, Goh and the man in the white singlet were detained by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).

“I was detained on Thursday night and only released on Saturday evening. I couldn’t sleep at all,” Goh recounted spending several nights in jail.

Reflecting on the incident, Goh expressed regret and wished he could turn back time to prevent the physical fight.

“No 1-by-1, no helmets, no winners, no losers. I just want to live my life as a store owner,” he said.

Goh, known for his love of cats, urged Malaysians, especially those trained in martial arts, to avoid engaging in fights.

“That’s not how we martial artists behave. This viral incident has nothing to do with race or alcohol. It’s purely about someone’s personality,” he clarified.

Maintain harmony

As a businessman, Goh emphasized his desire not only to sustain his business but also to maintain harmony with his customers.

He also mentioned that he hopes the incident would not affect the racial harmony in Malaysia.

The matter has since been resolved after PDRM facilitated a reconciliation between both parties. Interestingly, the man in the white singlet appears to have gained success following the viral incident.
