Daniel "Boobie" Gibson tells TMZ ... he was just defending his wife's honor when he got into an altercation with a man at the Essence Music Festival earlier this month ... after the guy disrespected Keyshia Cole in a "profane way."

Gibson -- who played with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season -- just called in to "TMZ Live" to explain why he turned himself in to police in New Orleans today on 2nd degree battery charges.

Boobie says Keyshia was performing at the event ... when some guy approached her and spouted off some very "disrespectful" comments toward the singer.

Boobie says an altercation broke out and "safety was threatened" ... so Boobie says he "needed to take action."

Despite the allegations against him, Boobie says he did nothing wrong -- adding, "I have nothing to be ashamed of or hide."

If people cant talk in a respectful tone then they deserve to get knocked out. If this mans wife was truly disrespected, not to mention infront of him then oh well. If the guy sues the judge should toss it. All the time you see Paps and random people trying to get pay days from celebs for silliness.

It's not possible for me to take someone seriously that goes by the name "Boobie". Can't do it.

He doesn't have anything to be ashamed of, but if he threw the first punch he's going to have to pay.
