Katie Price’s ex fiancé is set to fight in a celebrity boxing match, according to a new report.
The fitness instructor, 31, – who Katie split from in 2019 – is training for the fight which will take place at London’s O2 Arena, according to The Sun.
A source said: ‘The details are still under wraps but all the stars are in training now for it. When the date comes around they’ll be fighting in front of a big crowd at London’s O2 arena.’

Mother-of-five Katie and Kris dated on and off for two years before they ended their engagement and split in 2019.
She then got engaged to Carl Woods in April last year when he proposed ten months into their relationship.
It comes after last October Kris told of his hopes her recent drink-drive car crash was a ‘turning point in her life’, as he weighed in on the shock incident.

Katie was handed a suspended sentence in December after pleading guilty to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance after her horror crash.
And in an interview soon after, her former partner Kris told how the crash could be deemed as a ‘blessing in disguise’, with the personal trainer detailing how she used alcohol to ‘self-meditate’ during tough times.
Kris told The Sun: ‘Kate has a great family around her that will hopefully help her with this. I just hope this can be the turning point for her now to change her life.

‘The crash was like a blessing in disguise because now hopefully she can get the help she needs.’
The personal trainer and Katie met in May 2018 and got engaged in July 2019, but ended their relationship four months later.
Amid his supportive words about his ex, who learned of Katie’s crash on the news, went on to detail how she used alcohol as a crutch in times of trouble.
He said: ‘Katie has been open before about how she self-medicates. It seems this is her coping mechanism for whatever is going on in her life. I just hope now for her sake, her kids’ sake and her family’s sake that she gets through this and comes back out on top.’
Upon learning of her recent troubles, Kris admitted he was immediately ‘concerned’ for both her welfare and her children’s, adding that he could relate to her mental health struggles as he’s battled with his own issues.
Noting how he’s been in a ‘similar position’ to Katie, a sympathetic Kris remarked that he understands how ‘lonely’ things get and how ‘hard’ it is to get out of a ‘rut’.
MailOnline contacted Katie’s representatives for comment at the time.
Katie is mum to Harvey, 19, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke. While she welcomed children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with ex-husband Peter Andre.
She also shares Bunny, seven, and Jett, eight, with ex Kieran Hayler.
