Love Island Stars Reunited at Ultimate Boxxer

As the new series of Ultimate Boxxer was announced, Love Island star Jack Fincham was on hand to meet the elite crop of fighters who face off in April.

Names in the tournament include Seb Eubank, son of retired World Champion Chris, former Commonwealth Champion Luke Blackledge and Jack’s former Love Island villa companion, Idris Virgo!

“Last time I saw you we were in the villa, you were doing the pads for me!”

Neither star is a stranger to the boxing world, with Jack having fought 27 amateur fights, while Idris holds a record of 6 fights, 5 wins with 1 draw.

Each fighter took the time to speak with Jack, who then digested the tournament with boxing expert Steve Bunce.

Questioning Jack, Bunce asked “who Jack would pick as favourite, if he was in charge of the odds”. A tough call, but Jack chose to side with Charlie Schofield slightly ahead of Brazilian knockout artist Diego Costa and Seb Eubank.

Bunce, who has worked in the industry for more than 3 decades, was taken aback by the strength of the line up, widely considered to be the strongest Ultimate Boxxer card to date.

Clearly excited by the line up, Bunce described it as “the classic Ultimate Boxxer mix, the fishmonger, the Area Champion, the former Commonwealth champion and the guy from Love Island!”

Don’t miss the most exciting tournament of the year so far, live on BT Sport this April.
