Katie Price supports Alex Reid at his big fight

She was determined to support her husband Alex Reid when he took on Tom 'Kong' Watson in the biggest fight of his career.

But Katie Price's presence at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena wasn't enough to stop the 35-year-old cage fighter from getting a beating, and emerging from the BAMMA 4 Middleweight Championship match with a black eye.

And while Reid eventually lost the fight, he was praised for the perseverance and dedication which saw him progress to the last round of the competition.

However, Alex didn't come out of the fight unscathed, and showed off an incredibly painful-looking black eye as he came out of the ring to be greeted by his glamour model wife ringside.

Eager to help Alex after his injury, Katie, who was dressed in tight shiny black leggings and black vest top, rushed over to take a closer look at the bruise and see in which way she could help.

During the fight, Katie appeared to be finding it difficult to watch her husband taking such a beating, and was spotted with her head in her hands and wincing as she sat with friends including her brother Daniel.

And the mother-of-three was clearly proud of her husband's performance, writing on her Twitter page this afternoon: 'I'm sure you all agree alex proved himself xx'

Before the fight, Alex poked fun at his cross-dressing alter-ego Roxanne as he was escorted to the ring by a group of men dressed in women's clothing.

Clad in a short satin black robe with the letter R emblazoned on the back, Alex then took off the dressing gown to reveal a tight pair of camouflage shorts which he wore for the entirety of the fight.

Ahead of the fight, British middleweight champion Watson had said he was certain Alex would lose the match.

He said: 'I want to make a point to him. I cannot understand how people are afraid to fight for their career.

'If I can't beat Alex Reid how am I then going to talk about fighting the big names? I don't think Alex is under pressure for his career - if he loses, he's not that big a star anyway.'

Alex, whose nickname is The Reidinator, is now planning to enjoy two weeks off before he starts shooting his new TV show.

And while he has not revealed any details about the programme, Alex admitted he is 'terrified' about it.

He said: 'After the fight, I have a two-week break, then I get stuck into filming for my new show.

'I can't tell you too much about it yet but what I will have to do is bloody scary - and believe me - I'll be earning my money.'
