Brent Vitiello assaulted his celebrity boxing match rival and Married at First Sight Australia 2022 co-star Daniel Holmes outside the ring at a pre-match weigh-in on October 14.
The two MAFS grooms are set to take their TV feud to the Team Ellis boxing ring at Melbourne Pavilion on October 15 in a special ‘Fight at First Sight’ fight night after their rivalry spilled into the real world.
However, the pair have already come to blows before even stepping into the ring. And in the wise words of their co-star Mitch Eynaud, someone’s “wiggin’, bra!”
The two MAFS grooms were eyeing each other off and exchanging barbs during their pre-match face-off.
However, things quickly turned south when Brent grabbed Daniel’s face with both hands and pushed him backwards.
Daniel Claims it Was Brent Who Started the Altercation
Daniel did not retaliate to the attack and didn’t seem too phased, as he laughed it off.
Speaking exclusively to So Dramatic! he said that the former bar manager was the one who started the altercation.
“He said to me, “you can’t hide behind a keyboard now.” I said, “bro, one, I didn’t even say things to you online, I just made posters, and two, who uses keyboards? It’s called a phone,” he revealed to So Dramatic!. Touché!
Brent Reveals His Reasons For Assaulting Daniel Outside the Boxing Ring
When contacted for comment, Brent revealed his reasons for assaulting Daniel outside the boxing ring.
“Well, all that sh*t talk and disrespect comes with a price,” he explained. “I told him he can’t hide behind his keyboard anymore. I’ll teach him a lesson in the ring, while still upholding my respect and values outside the ring.”
He then added: “He has no moral compass and will pay for it.” Yikes!
It’s Not the First Time Married at First Sight’s Daniel Holmes and Brent Vitiello Have Come to Blows
In a press conference with Team Ellis’ Matt Testro on October 5, Brent and Daniel went back and forth over who was most prepared for the fight.
“How confident are you, Brent? How confident are you, champion?” Daniel taunted his opponent. “You confident you’re gonna win? Put a bet on it.”
The intruder groom then dared Brent to chuck $1,000 on the fight.
“It’s me verse a lettuce,” Brent mused. “Oh, f*ck yeah, done. $1,000 bet, brother.”
However, Daniel wasn’t convinced that his on and off-screen rival could pull the right punches, expressing he’d make “easy money” on the day.
“You heard it here first, $1,000 bet. That’s how confident you are… Sweet,” he said. “Easy money, because I’m partying with that, after the fight, with that money.
The tense press conference and weigh-in follows Daniel’s unsavoury choice to post a death notice-style promotion ahead of the celebrity boxing match.
