LONDON: Having knocked down many an off stump during his time as England cricket captain, Andrew Flintoff hopes to do the same to opponents when he takes to the boxing ring later this year. Flintoff is preparing for his debut fight which is scheduled for November 30. “This is 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 become a professional sportsman again,” said Flintoff. “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.”
