FORMER European featherweight champion Nicky Cook is set to take on the fitness industry following the launch of his first gym in Dagenham.
The boxer, 28 â€“ who is training for the world title â€“ will be building up his business at a rented gym in Crow Lane, which he is setting up with an eye to the future when his own fighting days are over.
He said: â€œI'm coming to the end of my career, I have been in some kind of fitness my whole life â€“ this is what I know. Iâ€™m not going to come out of boxing and become a builder â€“ fitness is what I do best.â€
Nicky said if the gym takes off he will look to invest in his own fitness centre when he retires. He even had plans to build a gym in his 150 sq ft back garden but because his girlfriend is pregnant again he has decided to put this on hold.
