The Wanted

We Challenge One Direction

To Fight Us

6/1/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-getty-wanted-one-directionThe Wanted is out for some boy band blood ... challenging their squeaky-clean pop-nemesis One Direction to a 5-on-5 boxing match (however that works) ... but it's for a good cause.

Max George -- The Wanted's front man and ex-LiLo lover -- told the NY Daily News​ that he and his band mate Jay McGuiness are 100% on board with the idea and not just to bash One D's faces in, but to raise money for charity.

Max told the paper, "We would like a boxing match — them against us. It would be brilliant for TV and I have no problem with it at all.”

Plus, Max says, it would finally settle any beef between the bands -- whose fans often pit them against each other on social media -- explaining, "They’ve got 12 million followers on Twitter and I get that they have an army of kids, but instead of doing that ... if they have got an issue, why don’t we actually do something financially -- like make some money for a charity, and blow off some steam in a boxing ring."

So we gotta ask ...

Sounds to me like the Wanted is getting a little desperate for attention. The world really has a little more on its plate than to care who would win this bitch slap.

How about instead of a fight, The Wanted stop talking about One Direction whatsoever? Huh? They don't get to be all high and mighty about doing it for charity - not after they continue to use 1d for publicity. Seriously, show me a recent interview where they don't talk about 1d. And, BTW, their behaviour is really problematic.

So I got to know who this One Direction are through The Wanted. One Direction look crappy unlike Siva, Max, Nathan who are soooo HOT! The only decent looking one from that other boy band is the dude with the black spike hair, and I think it a copy-cat of Siva hairstyle. You Directioner's should be thankful that your crappy group is getting Media coverage via The Wanted. :)
