£195 sounds reasonable to me.    After all Andy may well turn out to be a brilliant boxer.    The only tiny flaw I can see in the idea is that I once heard Andy say that as much as he loved the sport of boxing he doubted if he could ever hit anyone.    That might be a bit of a drawback in the ring.

According to TalkSport radio's breakfast show, it will be 8 x 3 minute rounds. If Andy can survive being knocked out in the early rounds, which is admittedly unlikely, then he could pinch this in the later rounds.

Could be just what he needs to sharpen up for Wimbledon five days later.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Yep, heard that.

Misunderstood genius.

Excellent decision by Murray.

Why prepare for Wimbledon by solely poncing around Queens Club in the company of Pimms-swilling arseholes?

Why not step into a ring, and let a Yorkshireman batter seven shades of faeces out of you for a charitable cause?

Tennis is a gladiatorial sport, and Murray is showing real foresight and innovation by incorporating this into his regime.

April-not-fooled. Very funny though, you got me going for a minute there as it fitted in with the photo and his own like of boxing. 
Hilarious!

£195 to watch Andy throw his tennis career down the drain? I'm game.

I was there for the start and I'll be there for the end.
Oh . Thanks Mark, Rolling Eyes it's your cheerfulness that keeps me going in the face of adversity.  w00t

I think the perpetrators have made the mistake of "over egging the pudding" in the final paragraph. Besides if this was true where is the actual April Fool? - I fell hook line and sinker last year, I am ashamed to say. This year April 1st and very daft story = no brainer. My first thought on reading it was to check the date.

Tickets aren't too dear really. I have read that for 1500 quid you get a ringside seat, full hospitality, and a chance to meet the man himself. I actually think the release date is deliberate - creates more speculation and hype- you know,maximum publicity.

I wonder how many media outlets Nigel will hook this time?

Nigel, you should have got permission from B/R ahead of time to post it on there. Would have spread quickly.

Wish I'd thought of an MMA-themed one to post up.

I may have been taken in by this one, actually. However, Murray was specifically asked about boxing in the post-match presser yesterday and said he can't do it because of the risk it poses to his wrists.
