Fair play to him. I think he is genuinely havin a laugh. He will probably end up doing a celebrity boxing match or something. There's no way he would be goin in the ring with the fellas he mentions in that video.

It's obviously a joke, anyone with a bit of boxing background or knowledge can see in his technique that he is taking the piss.

Wasn't he actually pretty good, but suffered badly from nerves when it came time to compete?

He can do what he likes of course but this seems the most ridiculous thing. One brain damage is an absolute possibility and two, he's 38 and loaded already.

Sack it off Rio, why bother. If you want a real challenge enroll at a university.

Turn your back on the TV company behind this crap Rio. Spend the gym time you'll have to put in with those kids instead.

It's either some reality show bull**** like the Idris ELba thing or heading a football really does give you brain damage.

Word of advice RIo, when it's all over don't ask Mickey Rouke for his plastic surgeon's number, M'kay...

This. Doesn't need the money, the fame, has won everything there is to in his own sport already. With everything that family's had to go through the last couple of years, he should be concentrating on quality time with his children, why put them through the stress of seeing him in the ring as well

Stress? Betfair are going to pay some pisspot amateur boxer with and 10 and 20 record to carry him for 8 rounds and then take a dive. They'll then drag a 6 part reality series out of it which will be shown on box nation.

John Arne Riise (liverpool, fulham) has started to "compete" in cross country skiing, but then again he is an absolute clown and a laughing stock of the entire nation, so -
