Ed Sheeran calls out Lewis Capaldi for a boxing fight in expletive-filled offer

Ed Sheeran calls out Lewis Capaldi for a boxing fight in expletive-filled offer

The star says he would love to go up against the Scottish singer.

Ed Sheeran is keen to get in the boxing ring with Lewis Capaldi.

The British singers appear to be good mates, however they might have to leave that at the door if they agree to go toe-to-toe against each other.

Sheeran appeared at Katie Taylor's super-lightweight bout against Chantelle Cameron over the weekend.

He congratulated Taylor after she won the fight and became a two-weight world champion.

However, before he was able to escape from the 3Arena, he was asked whether he would ever want to chuck on some gloves some day.

He was also quizzed on who he would want to face off with.

Sheeran initially told iFL TV: he would love to fight his dad, but when he was told to pick another musician he said: "[Lewis] Capaldi. Yeah, yeah. yeah...I'd do it."

While that might be chalked up as a bit of ringside banter, the 32-year-old double downed with an expletive-filled offer.

"Lewis, I'll f***ing have you, c**t," he said.

Fans were all for the two singers throwing fists in a celebrity boxing match.

One wrote: "Capaldi smashes Buckfast for breakfast no way this job takes a second jab."

Another said: "Imagine Ed Sheeran walking to the ring with 'I'm in love with the shape of you' in the background."

It would be one hell of a fight and no doubt would have more viewers than any of the Paul brothers' bouts in the past.

Earlier this year, Capaldi hilariously added a verse to a backing track from Sheeran in a video that went viral on social media.

The 27-year-old duetted the fellow hitmaker's video, which invited users to sing over the top.

Wanting to have a crack at it, Capaldi created a delightful melody which he filled with foul-mouthed language throughout.

Speaking to the camera with his headphones' mic in hand, he says: "Okay, right, Lewis Capaldi, Ed Sheeran, here we go. Let's do this."

Capaldi then launches into his tune, singing: "Back when you were mine I used to suck up on your t**s, but now that you're gone baby I miss you."

Trying his best to contain his laughter, he continues: "Every now and then I think about your p***y lips, crying all night long into my tissues.

"I do dumb s**t when I'm mad, sorry that I killed your dad, but can you still call me back."

Just beautiful - those lyrics brought a tear to my eye.
