The 51-year-old, who met the boxer while competing on ITV reality ice skating show Dancing On Ice, has insisted that he has always had a love for the sport.
"I love boxing," Pasquale told The Sun. "I've been doing it for years.
"I like to do things I'm scared of. I'm going to go boxing with Luke, he's going to come down to my gym. I'm looking forward to that."
Pasquale was booted off the show last Sunday.
