Flintoff WINS his first pro boxing bout as former England captain beats heavyweight Dawson on points.
Andrew Flintoff entered the ring a former England cricketer but left a heavyweight boxer after overcoming a second-round knockdown to beat American Richard Dawson on his professional debut.
Flintoff’s American challenger was handpicked by mentor Barry McGuigan to give him a stem test in his first ever heavyweight bout.Dawson, 20 has fought just twice but is unbeaten and will weigh in around 10kg more than the new slim line Fred. But he added, When you’re in the ring, I don’t think there’s any more incentive you need to knock people out or to punch people. He ‘ll be coming over here to win which i fully appreciate as a sportsman. But I’ll be doing the same.
However he does not appear to have any fight experience and even though we know he has been training with some of the best in the business, that is not the same as being in a prize fight taking punches.We think this is a good opportunity to give Richard some experience and exposure. Richad has been in training we just didn’t have his next fight lined up. This fits in well with what we want to do. We respect him (Flintoff). We don’t fear him but we do respect him.
