ANDREW FLINTOFF TO TAKE PART IN HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING







LONDON: Nearly two years after retiring from cricket, former England captain Andrew Flintoff is set to return to professional sport in the boxing ring.
The 34-year-old Flintoff is planning to enter his new sport as a heavyweight and compete in his first fight in Manchester in November, with his preparations documented in a three-episode TV series called "The Gloves Are Off."


‘It is an enormous undertaking to have a professional fight having no experience whatsoever. It is even more demanding when you're a legend in another sport,’ said McGuigan.





‘The pressure for Freddie, myself and my son is phenomenal given the little time we have. But I'm convinced Freddie will make a successful pro debut as a boxer
.’

Flintoff has yet to apply to the British Boxing Board of Control for a licence, and the process could take a few weeks according to the general secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, Robert Smith.




"Andrew Flintoff has not applied, nor has he been interviewed by anyone from the British Boxing Board of Control," said Smith.

"An application can take three to four weeks or longer depending on the circumstances. He will have to pass medicals and there are measures in place to see whether an applicant can actually box."

Smith added: "It is quite unusual. We haven't had many people apply with no experience at all, but there is a history of footballers and rugby league players taking up boxing, and (footballer) Curtis Woodhouse has done so very well."
