Have you read this piece about Wilde, Flea?

His first sparring partner was his wife...

" We used to spar in the bedroom or in the kitchen," Wilde said to me on one occasion. " She'd lead at me, and I'd dodge the blow."
" But did you ever hit back ? " I asked.
" Oh, no," replied Wilde, " but even if I had she'd have been nimble enough to get out of the way. She knows as much about boxing as I do."

Lynch looks more impressive on film than Wilde to me.
