British boxing champion David Price's promoter, Frank Maloney, who swapped sex and now lives as a woman named Kellie Maloney, has said that she was inspired to undergo the change after seeing former English footballer David Beckham wearing a sarong.

The 61-year-old former fight promoter, who guided Lennox Lewis to the world heavyweight title, went on TV yesterday for the first time since starting her new life.

Kellie, formerly Frank, revealed she knew from the age of three she was in the wrong body but kept it hidden for decades for fear of being branded a pervert, The Daily Star reported.

She said that she just kept it locked up, adding that she would buy women's clothes and feel horrified. Kellie said that she would screw them up and just throw them straight in the bin and wouldn't even put them on.

And, Kellie said that when Beckham appeared, when they started waxing themselves and everything else, she thought this is good and she can go to the beauty parlour now.

Kellie said that she can do things like that and say Beckham does it, all these footballers do it, what does it matter.

Kellie also revealed that the hardest moment was telling wife Tracey. She added that they are divorced, but she's very supportive.
