Flintoff circus rolls into the ring

In his latest venture to fill the gaping hole of retirement, Andrew Flintoff has taken to boxing and a convenient three-part TV series ahead of his first professional bout on November 30. Cecilia Waldon in the Daily Telegraph discovers Flintoff's new sport.

Flintoff has been luckier than most. Over the past two years, he's developed a credible career as the Gary Lineker of cricket. A TV presenter and radio personality, he's team captain on James Corden's Sky sports panel show, A League of Their Own, and has fronted a handful of documentaries. Even so, sports writers and TV critics have been scathing about this latest venture.
