Default Andrew Flintoff

is going on

as this been done? Can't see it has

Thought this was a charity thing. Maybe I was half asleep but it was on the news this morning - he is actually trying to start a boxing career? Barry M is his trainer? At heaveyweight? ?

He looked awful

Thoughts? Is it a wind up? Anyone know his opponent

is he at HW? ....ko waiting to happen.

He does look gaunt though, especially around the cheekbone area, you can tell hes been putting the training in.

I think hes just gonna have a few fights, its not like hes gonna get anywhere in the long run

it depends on the opponent. I think they'd have picked an opponent they know they can beat

They'll feed him bums then he'll retire after about 3 fights they ain't gonna spend money on documentaries and shit just for him to get knocked out...

Why is he fighting 4 x 2 minute rounds? I always thought pro boxing had to be 3 min rounds.

I know that some want him to get destroyed in there,but surely it's good for boxing that this fight put's the sport in the limelight.As long has he has trained hard and does not make a mockery of the boxing,then it's fine by me.

Turning pro at 35 with no prior boxing experience is surely a bad idea. I'm surprised he got a license.

No not a joke, I thought this was at the start but saw the weigh in, I believe this is also on boxnation not 100% tho, a KO waiting to happen, how the hell does he expect to stay fit he was injury prone at cricket and the training of a professional boxer is a lot more work than that of a cricketer.
