It’s a case of second time lucky for ex-Bachelorette Nazanin Khanjani and her boxing ambitions.
Illness caused her to withdraw from a bout with Mai FM DJ Lily Taurau on the undercard of Joseph Parker’s July bout with Solomon Haumono. But Spy can today reveal that the reality TV star will step into the ring on the undercard of Parker’s October 1 fight with Alexander Dimitrenko in Auckland.
Promoters Duco Events are still hunting for Khanjani’s opponent.
“Naz is still pretty angry with me for pulling her off the last card on doctor’s advice, and the fact I did not consult her on the matter,” Duco spokesman Craig Stanaway said.
“She keeps telling me she would’ve fought even though she was sick.”
“She’s pointed out to me that she’s felt a backlash from a number of ill-informed keyboard cowards out there who mistakenly believe she ducked that fight in July, which is obviously not the case.
“Naz wants to shut those haters up, so we’ll give her that opportunity — and I’m pretty certain she’s going to unleash fury on October 1”.
Khanjani’s new beau, bodybuilder Craig Sutherland, has joined her support team and we hear he is getting her into super shape.
