It’s a new kind of ratings war as reality stars from shows like Love Island, Real Housewives and jacked models and social media powerhouses take their grievances to the ring. They’re not messing around — Boxstar demands every competitor puts in the time with the top gyms and coaches across the UK. These fighters are bringing it. Order now on FITE.
“Over the past 25 years, I’ve been part of many major nights of boxing at the AO Arena in Manchester,” said legendary boxing announcer Michael Buffer. “On October 2, the arena will again have an electric atmosphere for Boxstar Celebrity Boxing as the anticipated sold out crowd will see their favourite celebrities compete in the ring. Some of the most well known and popular stars in the UK have been training for months with many daily hours in the gym to be a part of this presentation. I’m really looking forward to this as I have a feeling it’s going to be something special. Let’s get ready to rumble!”
Headlining the event is DJ and Celebs go Dating star Tom Zanetti. The Co-Mains are Celebrity BIg Brother’s Dan Osborne vs. Love Island’s Jamie Jewitt and two Real Housewives of Cheshire stars will settle their differences in the ring: Rachel Lugo and Leanne Brown.
The undercard features: Post-punk music legend and Celebrity Big Brother winner Marc “Bez” Berry vs. former Man U and Middlesbrough F.C. star Clayton Blackmore; Celebrity SAS and X Factor star Jack Quickenden vs. Marcel Somerville AKA Rocky B, the rapper and Love Island contestant; as well as Simon Webb of boy band Blue, Scottish comedian James English, MTV The Challenge winner Rogan O’Connor; Big Brother Anthony Hutton; and Love Island stars’ Dom Lever and Alex Beattie.
“This historic event will go down in media history,” said Darren Lamb, BOXSTAR UK owner and CEO. “Based on the success and momentum of social media and television stars nothing can prepare the fighters for what they are about to experience, ten weeks of intense training and then the night itself, at a sold-out AO Arena Manchester. Tom Zanetti is going to be a fantastic fight, but I think the ladies Leanne Brown vs Rachel Lugo could be the fight of the night. I have a vision with these events, and I think people will be blown away by the level of fighters we have engaged. It is going to be an incredible journey; hope you join me! I have worked my whole life promoting boxing shows both professional and amateur but this event opens up a whole new market, we already have Jake Paul and others in the USA making noise, my aim is to create a team to represent the UK talent and host a TransAtlantic mega show”
