FORMER prime minister Boris Johnson could make history after accepting a boxing match with UKIP's Nigel Farage.
Farage has challenged the ex-PM to a round in the ring after getting all excited at YouTube celebrity KSI’s fight with rapper Swarmz.
“Boris, are you up for it?” he urged the newly-wed father in a dramatic new video on TikTok where he has grown a large audience.
Now an insider has told National Mail that Bojo may actually accept the offer due to his less-than busy schedule and love for the limelight.
“Boris has always wanted to be in the spotlight, his history speaks for itself,” they said. “From big publicity stunts to ‘demz the breaks’, he just loves it.”
The insider revealed that Boris would be “more than happy” to accept the offer – making British history as the first PM boxer.
“Yeah I think he’d love a bust-up with Nigel, think of the press and publicity, he’s got nothing better to be doing let’s be honest.
“Even if it was for charity, I think Boris would absolutely love the attention of a high-profile boxing match, just like KSI and Swarmz’s.”
Nigel was in the crowd for KSI’s recent fight and told reporters he would be down to scrap with the former prime minister.
He looked excited in the moment and most people thought it was a passing comment – but now Nigel has re-issued his offer.
Taking to TikTok he called out Boris, saying he could “deal with him”.
“Alight, was that heat of the moment,” he asks on video. “Or, Boris, are you up for it?”
Commenters have rushed to respond to Nigel’s video which has already been watched more than a quarter of a million times.
“This would make history,” said one person. “Boris is shaking in his boots,” said another.
A third added: “This would be so much fun to watch.”
Viewers have mocked the ex-UKIP boss with one of his very own famous taglines, saying: “You all laughed at me.
“Well I have to say you aren't laughing now are you Boris.”
