Jamie Peacock calls out Rio Ferdinand for charity fight

Rugby League legend Jamie Peacock has called out former England international footballer Rio Ferdinand for a charity fight at Leeds First Direct Arena.

Ferdinand, 38, announced last week he will attempt to become a professional boxer but will first need to qualify for a British Boxing Board of Control Licence.

The ex-Leeds United player will be looking to test himself before going pro and could be tempted by the call out from the Rhinos legend.

Peacock himself has been training in the ring and took to twitter this morning to see if Ferdinand would be up for the charity bout, pointing to Spring next year as a potential time for the fight.
