Former cricketer Andrew Flintoff will weigh-in ahead of his boxing debut at the Manchester Arena.

The 34-year-old former Lancashire and England all-rounder will take on the unbeaten American heavyweight Richard Dawson tomorrow evening.

He is being trained by former world featherweight champion Barry McGuigan.

Speaking to ITV's Mike Hall during training Flintoff said: "It's just nice being a sportsman again.

"It's nice getting up and having the disciplines and having the routines I used to have, albeit in a different profession, and I'm really enjoying it.

"The thing with cricket is you might get out, but in boxing you get knocked out."
