Five Cricketers And Their Role In Boxing. Despite multiple international matches being played across the world, cricket is under the shadow of The Olympics. Last time cricket’s popularity in the subcontinent was overhauled by Olympics was in 1980, when the Indian hockey team last won a gold. Here we take a look at some cricketing stars who could make a good fist of their new roles in the boxing ring.
Five Cricketers And Their Role In Boxing
1) Andrew Flintoff (England)
Andrew Flintoff started boxing after retirement from cricket. In front of 5000 spectators at Manchester Arena, he defeated Richard Dawson 39-38 to become a lifelong member of the English Club of Boxers (ECB), and has was recently hired by them to teach Joe Root basic boxing defence techniques against Australians. Flintoff’s weakness lies in his weight, and his weak knees, making him a sitting duck against shorter opponents, also making him the global ambassador of an arthritis oil company called Turmoil.
