Cairns confirms 'still intends to appear' in boxing match with Doull despite 'fixing' row

Wellington, Dec 7 : Tainted New Zealand cricketer Chris Cairns last night confirmed he still intends to appear in the Fight For Life charity boxing extravaganza in Auckland next Saturday night where he is scheduled to fight fellow former Black Cap and commentator Simon Doull, according to reports.


According to Stuff.co.nz, Cairns said that it is business as usual for him and he is excited to be part of it.

Cairns, who left TV commentary duties with Sky midway through the third day of the first New Zealand-West Indies test in Dunedin on Thursday to be with his family in Auckland, said he wasn't sure if he would reappear in time for the second Test which starts in Wellington on Wednesday, the report said.

Cairns said he had been in training for the fight and would be back in the gym today to prepare for the fight against Doull.

Promoter Dean Lonergan confirmed Cairns has not been scared off by the ICC investigation, the report added.

Cairns, who worked alongside Doull for the Sky TV commentary team until news of the investigation broke on Thursday, has unwittingly boosted interest in his fight and that may result in gamblers placing money on their bout, the report further said.
