When Hayden Panettiere, 27, showed up on the Late Late Show, she and James Corden, 38, got to talking about the upcoming fight between her hunky boxer husband, Wladimir Klitschko, 40, and James’ hunky boxer friend, Anthony Joshua, 27 — a match that is sure to be an awkward one. Well, just for the late night host, Hayden teased, implying that her hubby will knock out Anthony.

Hayden went on to explain that they will fight will fight each other with “underlying respect” and then compared the experience to how she and former Nashville co-star Connie Britton, 49, had to act out hard scenes together on the show.

“Well, you got a job,” Hayden said. “It’s like doing a scene with somebody who you have to yell at and get angry at and you’re doing your job. It was like the first scene I ever did with Connie Britton. I had to come in, I apologized to her first before we even did the scene. I said, ‘I am so sorry for this.’ I had to come in and be this little diva like –, ” Hayden said, snapping her fingers around.
