Osbourne beats McIntosh
Jack 'The Ripper' Osbourne will take on Bradley 'Dynamite' McIntosh in Sport Relief's Battle at the Beeb

Jack Osbourne beat Bradley McIntosh in a pulsating fight in Sport Relief's 'Battle at the Beeb' to win the Sport Relief Light entertainment belt.

An evenly-matched contest was watched by an boisterous crowd as both men's vociferous supporters roared their support.

There could only be one winner and Jack was duly announced as the winner after a unanimous judges decision

Jack magnanimously told Bradley after his victory: "There are no losers here tonight we are all winners."

Sport Relief was certainly the big winner of the night raising a record 12,216,598 on the night.

Money will continue to come in for the coming weeks, and the organisers are confident of beating the campaign's previous highest total of 16 million.

Both men had been pushing themselves to the limit in training in the build up to the big fight.

Jack Osbourne has been pummelling the punchbag for an hour and a half a day, six days a week, at Frank Maloney's Fight Factory gym in South London.

Jack has been doing full-contact sparring but is still not convinced of his pugilistic powers: "I'm not a boxer by any means and I've got a lot of learning to do.

"I'm definitely nervous but I'm looking forward to it. I had no idea who I would be fighting but as soon as they asked I said, absolutely."

Frank Maloney is confident that his team can get the best out of Jack: "It's a brilliant opportunity to train with a great character like him," he said.

"By the end of his training regime, he will be a lean, mean, fighting machine. This show will turn Jack from a man into a real man."

Bradley is feeling much more confident ahead of the bout and has warned Jack he intends to "tear him out."

"I am not going to go in there thinking, hey I could possibly get beat" roared McIntosh.

"I am going to win. All my anger and everything is going to go into this moment - I am going to go in there and whip his arse."

Bradley's has been training with Danny Williams' trainer Jim McDonnell and his punishing regime has been just as intensive:

"He has got me doing push-ups, squat thrusts, running up hills, doing press ups, running back down again. Then he's like 'run a mile on the track', and I am like 'are you sure?!'

Jim McDonnell, who also trains World Welterweight Champion Takaloo, is certainly pushing Bradley to the limit.

The former S Club star was physically sick during their first training session:

"I threw up a little bit but I carried on running but after that mile he was like 'right now back to the push ups and squat thrusts' - I was like 'are you kidding me?' But he was serious."

Whatever happens it seems that both our fighters will be in tip-top physical condition for the big fight.

They will battle it our over three one-and-a-half minute rounds and referee Bill Phillips will be on hand to ensure a fair fight.

Viewers will be able to win prizes on the night by texting A or B depending on which fighter they are tipping for victory.

In 2002 Bob Mortimer beat Les Dennis, in 2004 Ben Fogle took care of Sid Owen - now Jack Osbourne has added his name to the list of Sport Relief champions.
