It comes as Maya was previously hired to host bouts last June by streaming service Dazn, but now a source claims she has become too busy to commit.

But she faced criticism online from fans including EastEnders’ Jake Woods, who argued that she lacked the experience for the role.

Speaking to The Daily Star, Jake said: ‘Obviously, they are going for a different audience with Maya Jama introducing it, but for my money I like to have someone introducing boxing and talking about boxing who has actually seen a boxing fight and understands just a little bit what boxing is.

‘I understand they’re going for a different audience, and what she does she’s great at, but not for my money.

‘I have a real problem with just the coverage of that. It grates me up the wrong way.’

Maya defended herself, arguing she was a secret ‘big boxing fan’ and pointed it out that she ‘never claimed to be a boxing expert’.

She said: ‘I think a lot of people are going to be thinking ‘why is she presenting boxing now?’ but I’ve secretly been a big boxing fan for years.

‘I love the sport. Me and my friends stay up until all hours of the morning to watch the fights. It’s a whole new challenge, a whole new adventure for me. Matchroom and DAZN are literally changing the game so I’m so excited to be a part of it.’

And in response to one troll on Instagram, she wrote: ‘Just gonna say this once lol I am a host… a presenter… I’m here to ask the experts questions live on tv… with producers in my ears and countdowns and timings to stick to.

‘I enjoy the sport and never claimed to be a boxing expert so you can laugh from your sofa all you want hun.’

A source told The Sun that Maya had quit the role because she had become too busy to commit to the channel. 

They said: ‘Maya loves watching boxing and, despite being criticised for her knowledge of it, she had a blast working there.

‘But her star power is still rocketing and she is in such high demand that she just can’t commit anymore.’
