Flintoff takes up professional boxing
Former England all-rounder has decided to don the boxing gloves for a TV show. The Guardian reported that the Ashes hero will take part in a TV series called The Gloves Are Off. Freddie will box in front of a packed crowd and under the gaze of TV cameras.
"An amazing opportunity to try a sport that I love, to be tutored by a man I respect and admire and, at the age of 34, the chance to be a professional sportsman again," Flintoff said.
He further added, "It's a huge challenge – probably the biggest I have ever undertaken, especially in such a short time frame. I have a long road ahead and a lot of work in front of me. The stakes are high."
