Wayne Rooney now being considered for Boxing match, KSI potential opponent

Posted by

Former Manchester United and England forward Wayne Rooney has reportedly held talks with Boxing promotional company Misfits over a potential fight.

The 38-year-old is a huge fan of the sport and has often been spotted at fights over the years. The former footballer was famously knocked out when fighting in a kitchen during his Man United career and that led to his well-known boxing celebration.

Rooney is currently a manager but that profession has not been kind to the England legend. The former Man United star was sacked by Championship side Birmingham City in January after recording just two wins from 15 matches but while he waits for a new role, he is said to be considering an unexpected Boxing debut.

According to the Mirror, Misfits – a crossover boxing promotion founded by YouTuber KSI and run by promoters Kalle and Nisse Sauerland – see Rooney as a serious option for one of their events following talks.

It must be stated that the former footballer has yet to agree to any terms, with discussions at an ‘early stage’ but the 38-year-old has always shown an interest in the sport.
