Joe Calzaghe Wants To Be A Movie Actor
Former King of the Ring (he retired undefeated) Joe Calzaghe has revealed that he wants to pursue a career in movies.
Rocky VI seems the obvious choice but the boxer of Welsh and Italian heritage has revealed that wants to do similar roles to ex-football hardman Vinnie Jones.
“I’m not in the gym every day like I used to be so I’ve got a bit of time on my hands,” last year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year told The Sun.
“I want to give the acting a go, why not? Vinnie’s done really well for himself, there’s no reason why I can’t.”
The 37-year-old took part in Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year, but exited the BBC One show in week five and claimed he had been booted out for being mouthy.
