Look: Nick Kyrgios swaps tennis racket for boxing gloves

The 20 year-old, who has been in the news for the wrong reason recently for some unsavoury on court comments to Stan Wawrinka, joked that he felt rusty after sharing a few rounds of the sweet science inbetween tournaments.

Kyrgios also caused a storm at Wimbledon this year when the talented 2013 boys’ doubles champion was given a code violation for swearing and arguing in his match with Richard Gasquet. Kyrgios then proceeded to allow the Frenchman to win and was eventually fined for his trouble.
