CELEBRITY FIGHT-OFF: Sylvester Sim Vs Steven Lim
Adding a touch of entertainment and glitz, we are proud to announce local stars Sylvester Sim and Steven Lim joining the event as celebrity fighters.

Sylvester Sim, 34, and Steven Lim, 41, have known each other since the first season of Singapore Idol in 2004. Sylvester, better known as Sly to his fans, found fame as the first runner-up in the national competition, whereas Steven, perhaps better known as the ‘Stripper of Singapore Idol’, garnered fame with his signature wayward style.

Off-stage, a long-term feud has been simmering between the 2 Idol alumni. Just recently in late May this year, Steven uploaded a YouTube video and blatantly challenged Sylvester to a fight. While Sylvester has yet to officially respond, the ardent wrestling and Bruce Lee fan has been updating his social media channels with videos of him undergoing intensive training sessions, captioned with implicit messages such as  “I hate people who have super ego and show no respect to others…I hate to break the news to you that someday, someone is gonna stop you,” not too subtly directed at Steven Lim.  The live match between Sylvester Sim and Steven Lim will definitely be a thrilling night to remember!
