Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has announced he's taking up boxing.
The 38-year-old's move into the ring is being backed by betting company Betfair, which announced the news on Tuesday.
Former Manchester United and England defender Ferdinand works as a TV pundit and he has his own clothing line.
"I'm doing this because it's a challenge," he said. "I've won titles and now I'm aiming for a belt."
He has posted several social media videos in recent months showing him boxing and working with personal trainer Mel Deane.
