Six years ago former England under 21 footballer Curtis Woodhouse became a professional boxer, and he was successful in the pugilistic art.
Last year he combined his boxing training and fighting with being manager of the oldest football club Sheffield FC. He has recently quit his post with the Northern Premier League club to concentrate solely on his boxing. His resignation coming following a 5-1 defeat to Belper; no one saw the physio throw a white towel onto the park! Well it was a Boxing Day fixture, honestly!
The 32-year old was once a 1million pound midfielder for Sheffield Unite d and Birmingham City, but will now defend his English Light Welterweight title against undefeated Shayne Singleton. He hopes this will lead to a crack at the British title.
One thing that was certain when he was in the dug out no one argued about his substitutions. Good job a certain Manchester City striker wasn’t playing for Sheffield FC.
