Jamie Ridge and some GC slapper are going to have a cat fight:
Jaime Ridge is to take on a bikini-clad reality television star from The GC in an unlikely boxing bout scheduled for July.
Ridge, the daughter of former Kiwis captain and All Black Matthew Ridge, has been training for her televised boxing debut, to be held on July 5.
The 18-year-old is understood to be fighting reality star and glamour model Rosanna Arkle from TV3’s controversial show about “mozzies”, The GC, in the undercard match at the KFC Godfather of Fight Nights.
A source said Arkles was insisting on fighting in just a bikini. Fairfax Media reported the fight would consist of three two-minute rounds, and said Arkle, from Whangerei, flew into Auckland yesterday.
The fight was set to be confirmed today at 11am.
The main fight at the event, to be held at the SkyCity Convention Centre, is between heavyweights Shane Cameron and American Monte Barrett.
