In a surprising turn of events, Ed Sheeran, the renowned singer-songwriter, has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged fellow musician Lewis Capaldi to a boxing match. This unexpected call-out has sent shockwaves through the music industry and left fans buzzing with anticipation.
The challenge originated from Sheeran’s attendance at a recent boxing match between Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron. As he watched the intense bout, Sheeran’s fighting spirit ignited, and he couldn’t resist the urge to imagine himself in the ring.
When prompted about who he’d like to face in a boxing match, Sheeran didn’t hesitate to name Lewis Capaldi, his fellow musician and friend. With a cheeky grin and a hint of competitiveness, Sheeran declared, “Capaldi, yeah yeah yeah.”
Sheeran’s declaration sent a ripple of excitement through the crowd, and Matchroom Boxing’s Frank Smith jokingly chimed in, “Yeah, we’ll get that done.”
Sheeran, determined to make his intentions clear, added with a playful aggression, “I’d do it. Lewis, I’ll f*ing have you, ct.”
Fans of both Sheeran and Capaldi took to social media, expressing their reactions to the unexpected challenge. Some were thrilled by the prospect of a celebrity boxing match, while others expressed concern over Sheeran’s unfiltered language.
Capaldi, who has been taking a step back from performing due to his Tourette’s syndrome, has not yet publicly responded to Sheeran’s call-out. However, his friends have rallied around him, praising his strength and courage in dealing with his condition.
Whether or not this boxing match will actually materialize remains to be seen. However, one thing is certain: Ed Sheeran’s challenge has sparked a buzz of excitement and has left fans eagerly awaiting further developments.
