Tinie Tempah has been venting any pent-up stress he may have with a workout in the boxing ring.

The Simply Unstoppable rapper shows what he's made of in a new advert for Lucozade Sport, co-starring Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and World Champion boxer Katie Taylor.

Tinie said: "I'm a big boxing fan and while Travis set the pace on drums, it was great to be put to the test by a world champion like Katie.

He added: "When we arrived at the shoot in Los Angeles Katie, Travis and I didn't know what would happen, but when we came together, the energy flowed and I think we've captured something very special on screen and on record."

Katie revealed: "Tinie's done a bit of boxing in the past so you'll see in the film I test out his skills, although he made sure he didn't get too close!"

The advert, featuring a remix of Tinie's Simply Unstoppable with drums from Travis, celebrates Lucozade's new YES campaign to highlight how music can inspire energy in people.

The film, the first in a series of three, can be previewed exclusively at www.facebook.com/lucozade on Wednesday March 30 before it airs on TV on April 12.
