Former England rugby union international James Haskell has vowed to treat his switch to professional fighting more seriously than Andrew Flintoff.

Haskell, 34, who played 77 times for England, announced last week that he will compete in mixed martial arts after signing with Bellator.

Haskell retired from rugby in May and will follow in the footsteps of Flintoff, who turned to boxing following the conclusion of his cricket career.

Flintoff was victorious in his only bout in 2012, but the fight attracted much criticism from the professional boxing world.

“You have to respect Freddie for getting in the ring, but I am very different, this is a different sport and I am taking it much more seriously,” Haskell told the PA news agency.
