Jamie O’Hara ‘wants to knock Kris Boyson’s fake teeth out’ in celebrity boxing match

Jamie O’Hara has revealed how ‘friendship has gone out the window’ with Kris Boyson as the pair are set to go head to head in the boxing ring.

The 35 year old former professional footballer is set to face personal trainer Kris, 33, at The O2 arena on Saturday 2 April and exclusively told OK! that he believes his opponent will ‘freeze’ in front of the crowd.

Jamie, who shares children Archie, 10, Harry, nine, George, seven, with ex Danielle Lloyd, 38, revealed how he and Kris, who have been friends for five years, are ‘keeping their cards close to their chest’ ahead of the Boxstar Celebrity Boxing match.

The football pundit said: “There is no ‘friends’ and it is about putting on a performance where I don’t look like an idiot. I know he is a big, powerful lad and he is ripped.

“I know he could hurt me so I have got to be on it and I want to look at his fake teeth and I want to put them out of his head!”

He added: “I think he [Kris] is going to freeze on the night. I have seen him play in charity games and football matches and he absolutely freezes. He couldn’t hit a barn door when I played in a charity match with him!”

Jamie, who also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017, said: “I am used to be in front of crowds and walking out in front of thousands of people. He has never had that before. He is just used to going to red carpet events and looking like an absolute donut.”

The talkSPORT presenter, who weighs 101kg in comparison to Kris at 81kg, said: “Yes he is a big lad but I am actually heavier than him as well. So as much as he looks ripped and muscular, being muscular doesn’t make you a good boxer.

“I think he is scared. I think he is bottling it, I don’t know if he fancies it. I don’t even know if he is going to turn up?”

Jamie, who met Kris through his ex Katie Price, revealed how he has cut out alcohol and is training three times a week along with 6k runs twice a week to be at his best.

Speaking about training, Jamie continued: “I know he is doing a lot and he knows I am doing a lot but we haven’t really said anything to each other.

“The friendship has gone out the window because I know he doesn’t like to get mugged off and I don’t want to get mugged off.”

Meanwhile Jamie, who is also stepdad to Arabella with his partner Elizabeth-Jayne Tierney, revealed how his children are not as confident, as he added: “They have been giving me some stick. I took them to boxing training the other day and they were all saying: ‘Dad you are going to get knocked out!’ They were like: ‘Have you seen Kris? Have you seen the size of him?’

“They were showing me pictures of him [Kris] with his shirt off and I went: ‘Lads, it’s not about muscle, it’s about speed.’ They are not overly confident let’s just say that…”

But asked who will be buying the first pint after the match, Jamie said: “He [Kris] won’t be buying any rounds because he will be in hospital! He ain’t going to be doing anything apart from sitting in a hospital bed with no teeth!”
