Rio Ferdinand retired from playing football in May 2015 but the legendary former Manchester United centre back is not yet done with professional sport.
According to The Telegraph, the 38-year-old BT Sport pundit is set to launch a career as a pro boxer.
Ferdinand is expected to officially announce his decision to move into the fight game on Tuesday afternoon.
Ex-England captain Ferdinand appears to have already begun training for his new adventure.
He regularly posts workout videos on Instagram.
And earlier today he shared footage of himself doing a drill designed to sharpen his reaction.
It involved dodging a tennis ball, rather than punches.
He captioned the post: “Dodging Rain Drops…. Reaction Drill… Keep Moving!!”
Ferdinand makes no secret of his love for boxing and posed for a photo with Anthony Joshua back in April.
