Boris Johnson insists he would beat Jeremy Hunt in a mud-wrestling competition and the jokes were hilarious


Boris Johnson might be avoiding a verbal debate in this crucial time leading up to the final leadership vote, but it looks like he would gladly get a bit more physical and take part in a naked mud wrestling event.

Yes, Boris boasted he could definitely beat his competitor, Jeremy Hunt, when asked by the ConservativeHome today whether he "felt compelled to challenge him [Hunt] to a nude wrestling contest".

The Tory frontrunner said:

I would defeat anybody in such a contest, were I obliged to do so, but that's not how I propose ot win this.

But his challenge did not go unnoticed, as Hunt took to social media to hit back, tweeting "absolutely not", and then adding: "If he turns up to the debate we can have a quick wrestle after".

The internet couldn't help themselves and just had to weigh in on the potential contest.

Well, there's only one way to find out. Shield your eyes, everybody!
