Fernando Torres is a name synonymous with football fans and at one point, the former Liverpool and Chelsea star was considered one of the best players in the world. Following his retirement from football in 2019, Torres has added the art of boxing to his training regime to keep himself in prime shape.
Torres was promoting his latest venture, Space By 9 Fitness Center in Madrid, so wanted to get himself into sensational shape to reach an optimum audience. Boxing is often used by personal trainers as it is a great form of fitness as well as discipline and seeing a sporting star like Torres trying his hand at a programme involving boxing training could inspire many. A clip on the Space by 9 Instagram shows Torres smashing the pads of a trainer in the gym, alongside other training clips.
Torres is in tremendous shape following a very successful football career and it looks like he could be paying the sport of boxing a thank you in aiding him to keep in prime shape. Torres is currently a part of the coaching academy at his former club, Athletico Madrid, and is working his way through the ranks in management.
Boxing has tapped into the celebrity market as of late, with influencers, YouTubers and sports stars competing in cross-over bouts quite often, so could this be Torres teasing a potential exhibition boxing bout?
