Freddie Flintoff: The Gloves Are Off

Format: 3 x 45
Commissioner(s):  Sky1
Available in HD

No mainstream professional sportstar has ever transformed themselves into a professional boxer, especially not an icon like celebrity cricketer Freddie Flintoff. This is the challenge of a lifetime and his reputation could be on the line…

In this adrenalin-fuelled series we follow Freddie as he undertakes a gruelling four month training schedule with the very best in the boxing world. Former world featherweight champion Barry McGuigan and his son Shane, along with boxing superstars Mike Tyson and Sugar Ray Leonard take Freddie under their wings as he strives to realise his dream.

Boxing fitness is known to be unequalled in the sporting arena, so Freddie has his work cut out. The series culminates in a professional fight in front of 15,000 spectators, broadcast live. His opponent? An unbeaten, up-and-coming star who is almost a decade Freddie’s junior. Does Freddie have what it takes to go from Lord’s… to the ring? The gloves are off!
