4. Rio Ferdinand, Boxing
After a successful professional soccer career, former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand decided on a change: He wanted to become a boxer. Ferdinand made the transition at 38 years old, but that hasn’t slowed him down one bit. Ferdinand got absolutely ripped during his training, which was spearheaded by former WBC super-middleweight champion and Olympic Team Great Britain boxing trainer Richie Woodhall.
“I’m doing this because it’s a challenge,” Ferdinand, who appeared in more than 500 matches during his Premier League career, told the BBC. “I’ve won titles, and now I’m aiming for a belt.”
