Tom Hardy could ditch Hollywood and ‘take up boxing for real’, claims Manny Pacquaio’s coach
Hollywood star has been training hard in the ring to beef up for his role as The Kray twins with Freddie Roach
If Tom Hardy felt like it was time to ditch the razzle dazzle of the silver screen he could always turn his fists to boxing - or so a boxing veteran claims.
The 36-year-old actor has been preparing for his role as Kray twins by training with Freddie Roach, the former coach of world champion boxer Manny Pacquaio, The Sun reports.
Gruelling sparring sessions and workouts with trainer Freddie helped Tom get into shape for new movie Legend, where he plays both of the notorious gangsters - Ray [sic] and Reggie - who boxed as amateurs.
The coach has been pushing the Batman star to his limits and reckons he certainly has the talents to take part in a professional bout. According to the newspaper, Roach reckons “he could step in the ring for real”.
