Following the epic fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, it looks as if another clash of the titans is on the horizon.

Child opera star-turned-pop singer Charlotte Church has challenged controversial columnist Katie Hopkins to a boxing match after the pair became embroiled in a Twitter feud over the Tories' historic victory.

It all kicked off on social media after Church, who recently claimed that David Cameron's return to the helm meant that we had "handed the reins to the bogeymen", attended a protest against the Conservative government on Sunday (9 May) and shared her disappointment at the result on social media.

Not one to shy away from voicing her opinion, Hopkins sent a direct message to the 29-year-old singer on Twitter, telling her: "Oi! @charlottechurch wind your neck in. Your Welsh AND you lost. Own your problems."

To add insult to injury, she accompanied the message with a link to her own column in The Sun in which she reveals how "smug" she is that the Tories won 331 seats, well above Labour's 232.

Although Church initially refused to rise to the bait, the mother-of-two eventually hit back branding the former BBC Apprentice contestant a "parasite".

She then took it one step further by offering to take Hopkins on in the ring while raising money for a good cause.

Hopkins has not responded to the offer and it could be because she has been busy unpacking her bags.

In March, Hopkins threatened to leave the UK and move to Greece if Ed Miliband's Labour party triumphed on election day.

"If this man is prime minister I will leave the UK. This man is not Great Britain. This man is Russell Brand in chuffing suit #battle4number10."

She later explained her reasoning saying: "Because that's how Britain will become. Bankrupt."
