"Boxing With The Stars" is a star-studded event, created and hosted by Jake Wood (Eastenders) and Spencer Oliver (Sky Sports).
With 3 shows completed so far, and the next one in the pipeline for March 2018, we thought it would be a nice idea to share the story so far!
Boxing With The Stars has already made a name for itself within both the Boxing world and the celebrity circle, with previous fighters including Lewis Bloor (The Only Way Is Essex), Wayne Bridge (Footballer), MC Harvey (So Solid Crew), Dan Osborne (The Only Way Is Essex), Dean Edwards (ITV's Celebrity Chef) and many more. The last show which took place in October 2017, also saw the brand bringing in their first female contestants, Pascal Craymer (International Gymnast) and Danielle Mason (Model & Presenter) which went down BRILLIANTLY with the guests on the night!
So, let's take it back to the beginning. How did the idea of Boxing With The Stars come around? Spencer Oliver tells us exactly how it went...
... and that was that! The guys decided that they would get the ball rolling, and that's when it all began.
You can head over to the official Boxing With The Stars YouTube page and watch the fights from the first two events, with fights from the October 2017 event coming soon, too! You'll be able to see fights including Jake Wood vs Adrian Pinder, Lewis Bloor vs Heavy D, Wayne Bridge vs Les Freeman and more! Make sure you subscribe to the channel whilst you're there ;).
