‘IT is somewhat surprising – and a great pity – that celebrity boxing never really took off after Ricky Gervais’ bout against Grant Bovey a year or so ago.

‘The best boxer/actor since Frank Bruno’ – H. Carpenter

One would have thought that the sight of Mr Anthea Turner’s permatanned face being pummelled by The Office funnyman would have fuelled a demand for more showbiz fisticuffs.

But if the sport does suddenly catch on in the same way that pro-celebrity golf has done, there is no shortage of potential grudge matches.

The National Enquirer fancies itself as a bit of a Don King when it comes to promoting these bouts, publishing a four-page feature this week on potential pugilists.

And topping the list is Sarah Jessica Parker, who will be slipping into a pair of Manolo Blahnik boxing boots to slug it out with co-star Kim Cattrall.

The magazine says that trouble has been simmering between the two Sex And The City stars for a long, long time.

Some sources report that Kim is refusing to sign on for a movie of the hit HBO series because she doesn’t want to work with Sarah; others that Kim is upset with Sarah for pulling the plug on the show; and still others that Sarah is jealous of Kim’s fan base.

However, yet others suggest that it isn’t Kim or Sarah who is the cat among the proverbial pigeons but Kristen Davies, who plays butter-wouldn’t melt-in-my-mouth Charlotte.

According to one report, after she filmed her last scene on the show, the crew started singing Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead from The Wizard Of Oz.

What is for sure is that there is nothing here that couldn’t be sorted out by a good old-fashioned four-way slugfest.
