Ex Boxing Star Joe Calzaghe's next move may be a Big One! By Johnny Benz (Dec 16, 2009) Doghouse Boxing
Joe Calzaghe who recently went into retirement from the sport, seems to be really enjoying his free time. Calzaghe who retired with an amazing professional record of 46 wins (KO 32), 0 losses and 0 draws, would now like to follow in the path of retired Welsh football (soccer) player, Vinnie Jones.
Vinnie Jones has gone from successful football player to a success on the movie screen. American audiences will probably recognized Jones best for his role as a mutant named "Juggernaut" in the 2006 smash hit
movie, "X-Men: The Last Stand".
According to media reports, with his retirement, Calzaghe who has a lot of free time these days and admits he doesn't hit the gym as often as he use to, would like to make a transition to the movie screen.
Recently Calzaghe was quoted by the Sun UK stating that he is no longer goes to workout at the gym everyday like he has in the past, so he reckons he has a lot of free time on his hands and thinks acting might be a good way to eat up that free time. Calzaghe stated to the media publication: "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." Calzaghe made those comments while attending the movie premiere of the new Sherlock Holmes movie which stars Robert Downey Jr. and is directed by Guy Ritchie. It is being reported that Calzaghe has asked Guy for advice. And why not? Guy has been credited for helping to start the career of Vinnie Jones' movie career by debuting the former footballer in his 1998 major hit feature film "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". Jones would later star in Ritchie's next massive blockbuster, "Snatch" as Bullet-Tooth Tony.
