Danny Dyer eyed for boxing match with Jack Fincham

Share article:

Danny Dyer is set to fight Jack Fincham in a charity boxing match.

The "EastEnders" actor is reportedly being lined up to face the "Love Island" star - who is dating his daughter, Dani Dyer - in the ring for Boxing With the Stars in June.

And despite his hardman image, Danny may have a tough battle on his hands because 26-year-old Jack is a "bit of a pro" as he's practised the sport for years.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Jack's a bit of a pro in the ring, having boxed for most of his adult life.

"Organisers want to give him a real challenge and know coming head to head with Danny would give him the ultimate jitters.

"This time the match will be televised. It would be guaranteed viewing gold and raise tons for charity in the process."

However, bosses are worried things could get "serious" if the former stationery salesman has any relationship issues in the coming months.

The source added: "The only concern at the moment is what would happen if Jack and Dani were to split up again. It could all get a bit serious."

Jack has already signed up for the charity boxing event and is in training, with organisers determined to land the 41-year-old actor as his opponent.

Boxing With the Stars was set up by Danny's "EastEnders" co-star Jake Wood, who plays hardman Max Branning, during a break from the soap in 2016.

Danny recently admitted he "got it wrong" when he told his daughter not to appear on "Love Island" because he was very proud of her on the reality show.

He said: "She is a beautiful little soul. I did tell her not to do ["Love Island"]... but I got it wrong... She did it with grace and dignity.

"She did find a geezer, but she didn't do none of that [sex on the show]... I said to her, "If you're going to do it, win it."

"She is quite a vulnerable little thing and I think she showed that vulnerability, she is a normal kid. I think people because of me had a perception of her, but she was anything but that."
