Flintoff undecided over boxing future following debut win
London: Former England Test captain Andrew Flintoff has claimed he will wait until after Christmas to decide whether he wants to carry on boxing.
Flintoff said he wants time off after battling back from a knockdown to scrape a points win in his debut bout against Richard Dawson.
“I just want some time off. I want a nice Christmas and not get up every day and go through what I’ve been through for the past four and a half months. After Christmas I’ll start deciding what’s next,” the Daily Star quoted Flintoff, as saying.
The former England cricket captain lost more than three stone as he trained for the bout, and weighed in two stone lighter than his US opponent.
Freddie added: “I sprouted a few abs out of my belly. It’s like the physical aspect is one thing and the mental aspect is another thing. I take my hat off to boxers.”
“I think I got the full experience – the canvas, the black eye and the win. It was like an out-of-body experience, unbelievable,” he added.
Flintoff won the bout in Manchester by 39 points to 38.
