Man Utd legend Ferdinand set to announce boxing aspirations

Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand is set to announce a career change.

According to multiple reports in England, the BT Sports pundit is going to attempt to become a professional boxer.

The 38-year-old has scheduled a 'major news conference' on Tuesday, where he is expected to announce the decision.

The former England centre-back has stayed in shape since retiring in 2015. It is unclear who his first opponent will be, but he has jokingly called out heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua, as well as Tyson Fury and Tony Bellew.
