Tyson Fury was not the only one getting ready for action this weekend. Actor John Connors has offered to box former Westlife member Brian McFadden in the ring for charity after the pair were involved in a heated Friday-night Twitter spat.

McFadden had originally tweeted Donald Trump’s criticism of Oscar-winning film ‘Parasite’, saying “We were all thinking the same”, which Connors took exception to.

Obviously annoyed at the remark, Connors responded by saying the film was a “masterpiece”, and that McFadden should stick to “dodgy harmonies.”

The former talent show judge wasn’t finished however, saying Connors thinks he’s “russel Crowe” after his performance in RTÉ’s hit programme, Love/Hate.

Connors went one further and said the Artane man’s music is a “stain on Irish culture.”

The former Dancing on Ice star replied with a sarcastic: “Brilliant!! Very creative” before Connors responded with: “Why thank you. That’s what I do. Create. You destroy… Art. Lives. Ear drums.”

Finding out McFadden was an amateur boxer, Connors then offered to enter the ring with him to resolve their dispute.

With no answer from McFadden yet, Connors goaded him further, whilst reassuring him he wasn’t quite at Muhammad Ali’s level.
