Cairns and Doull ready to punch each other's brains out all for charity!

Wellington, Dec 3 : Former international cricketers Simon Doull and Chris Cairns are contemplating taking on each other in the boxing ring in the Fight for Life event in Auckland on December 14.


According to Stuff.co.nz, the former international cricketers spent a couple of hours in Invercargill yesterday as part of the promotion for the Fight for Life event before they head north to Dunedin where they will commentate the New Zealand-West Indies, which starts today.

Both admitted the thought of stepping into the boxing ring was daunting and didn't expect any favours despite the fact they are good mates, the report said.

Cairns had been roped in 10 weeks ago by promoters Duco Events while Doull has been a late callup just a matter of three weeks ago when they struggled to get a suitable opponent for Cairns, the report added.

He said that him and Doull did not have an axe to grind, not as much as how he and Doull wanted to fight Mark Richardson and smash him in the face.

Both Doull and Cairns concede they are nervous about just what might unfold, the report further said.
