SAS Australia star Eden Dally threatens to QUIT upcoming boxing match against The Bachelorette’s Timm Hanly over social media jabs

They’re scheduled to go head-to-head in a boxing match in one month’s time, but it appears Eden Dally and Timm Hanly might not even make it to the ring.

The pair are set to take part in the Now Or Never boxing tournament in April which will see 10 reality television stars box it out. 

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, SAS Australia’s Eden, 28, revealed he was taking the upcoming match very seriously.

‘I love boxing, I love the sport and respect it very much. I’ve always wanted to fight and when the opportunity arose I thought I’d give it a shot… I would never disrespect the sport, I’m taking it seriously,’ he said.

And while he’s excited to get into the ring, the former Love Island star revealed he was getting offended by the social media jabs posted by his opponent.

‘If I thought this was disrespecting the sport, if (Hanly) brings up Instagram insights again I’ll pull out,’ he admitted.

‘These days there’s a lot of keyboard warriors talking tough on Instagram and talking a big game, but come the night once you get punched in the face it’s a different story.’

The most recent social media jab he was referring to was an Instagram Video in which Timm calls Eden ‘a w***ker.’

At one stage Tim described Eden as ‘a prison officer who gets around and bullies people with their hands behind their back.’

He then went off to conclude his video by saying, ‘I’m just letting you know I don’t like this bloke and I can’t wait to punch his f***ing head in.’

Although we’re yet to know who will win on the night, eight other reality stars have put their name down to compete in the Melbourne-based boxing competition.

Some of the names include, Bachelorettte alumnis Jamie Dornan, Paddy Collar and Kieran Stott.
