The Indigo at the O2 in London, England, will play host to this latest instalment of celebrity boxing – with six fights on an intriguing undercard.
Simon – real name Simon Colbran – told Pitch Side: “I’m confident. I wouldn’t get in the ring if I didn’t think I was going to win.
“But I’m not going to be like him. He’s a cocky little s*** isn’t he? Let him do all the talking.
“I’m realistic. I know what the situation is. I’ve got to train hard and be at my best ability and my best fitness to beat him.
“I’m not stupid, you know? He’s in really good shape, he is, that’s the only compliment I’m going to give him.
“But he is in good shape and I know I’ve got to give my all and put myself through the paces to win that fight.”
