Maya has signed a deal with sports streaming platform Dazn and fight promoter Matchroom – led by Eddie Hearn – to present from the ringside at bouts.

It all starts with events over three consecutive weekends from– July 31, which are being staged at the Matchroom HQ in Brentwood, Essex.

Maya will join forces with sports broadcaster Mike Costello as he takes the reins as lead commentator.

She said: “I’ve always loved boxing and this is a whole new adventure for me, which I can’t wait to begin.

“I’m hoping to bring a new energy, flavour and vibe to one of my favourite sports.”

AJ MORE THAN OK ON MIC AT KARAOKE

AJ ODUDU will get pulses racing when viewers see her in this saucy little outfit on the upcoming series of Celebrity Karaoke club.

The presenter seemed to discover her wild side the minute she got hold of the microphone and took to the stage on the ITV2 show.

She said: “I had no nerves whatsoever, I just threw myself into it. I mean, karaoke is such a feelgood thing to do.

"I just thought, what better way to be filled with joy than to pick up a mic, sing all of my favourite songs, wear really flamboyant outfits and meet new people?”

AJ did just that, crooning away on the show, which is on July 5.

She will be appearing with Olivia Attwood, Amelia Lily, Sonny Jay, Tanya Bardsley, Harvey And Max Mills and Brian Dowling.
