I think they've dramatically overestimated the appeal of Freddie Flintoff boxing. I don't think there's a massive cross over between boxing and cricket fans, I like both but I can't see the people who used to watch him at Lords being that bothered about seeing a guy they used to watch box that they'll fill out a bog venure for it, neither are boxing fans going to turn out in mass for a guy who used to bowl for England. He's got an obvious leg up than your usual debutant but not enough to starty his career in 20 thousand seat venues.
