Actor and reality TV star Dean McDermott will be the Celebrity Boxing contest between Meghan Markle & # 39; s brother and Henry & # 39; Nacho & # 39; Luan this summer, DailyMailTV can reveal referee
Reality TV star Dean McDermott has signed up for the Celebrity Boxing referee between Thomas Markle Jr. and Henry & # 39; Nacho & # 39; Laun, DailyMailTV can reveal.
The two unlikely heavyweights are chewing to extinguish it on June 29, but McDermott, 52, says he wants to ensure a fair fight.
Luan, a close friend of Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg, uses his ring nickname & # 39; Nacho Extreme & # 39; before the competition, while Meghan Markle & # 39; s older brother Tom & # 39; The Duke & # 39; is mentioned in a nod to his royal brother-in-law.
McDermott, who actually played the lead, shows with his wife Tori Spelling and host country of the Canadian cooking show Chopped Canada, says he has experience in the boxing ring and as a fighter of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), but admits that he has to brush on the rulebook.
& # 39; Nacho, he has Mark Wahlberg in his corner and Mark is a good hunter. So I think Nacho will come out with a little more agility, & # 39; McDermott told DailyMailTV about the fight.
& # 39; Thomas is more of a swinger and a fighter. But I would be wrong, I'm just the referee. & # 39;

McDermott, who is married to actress Tori Spelling, told DailyMailTV: "I can keep these guys under control," adding that he wants the men to "have a good fair fight".
Should the fight get out of hand, McDermott said he was convinced he could handle the two heavyweights.
& # 39; I'm 6 & # 39; 3 & # 39 ;, 230lbs, so I can control these guys, & he said. & # 39; I want them to have a good, honest fight. At the end of the day, I don't think one of them is going to do a pro, so this is for fun and condition.
& # 39; Now that boxing is back at the age of 52, I am older, wiser and know more about the boxing game, I am now a better fighter than I am as a young man. & # 39;
Laun, 54, has struggled in the fight, which, according to him, is a & # 39; snail fest & # 39; will be.
& # 39; I always have a good time. I don't have a fighting style, I just roll with the punches, step by step, & he told DailyMailTV.
& # 39; It could be a weak fest if they want to break the gloves of ten ounces, the 16, no problem. I'm going to go old school, I will go frantically if I have to – that's why they call me EXTREMELY. & # 39;
Laun says he has started training with former champion boxer Joey & # 39; D Train & # 39; Degrandis in Boston.
Laun, who has good friends with actor Mark Wahlberg and an extreme eater from Boston, Massachusetts, will fight under his ring nickname & # 39; Nacho Extreme & # 39 ;.

Celebrity Boxing is a competition in which two celebrities or people in the media compete against each other to raise money for a good cause.
The fights are three rounds of two minutes and are governed by celebrity favors. The June fight will take place in Los Angeles or in Atlantic City.
Philadelphia-based boxing promoter Damon Feldman – known as the & # 39; 16 minute man & # 39; for giving celebrities their 16th minute of fame in the boxing ring – told DailyMail.com that he can't wait to see how the two men go for it.
& # 39; For Tom & # 39; s buddy to step in with Nacho, who is also a big guy, it will be pretty cool, it will be a great fight.
& # 39; And now having Dean on board as a referee, it is pretty exciting. & # 39;
Feldman, a former undefeated professional boxer, called the Jewish Rocky, also produces a film about his colorful life in 2020.
