Freddie Flintoff Is Not Happy With David Haye After He 'Beat-Up' Jack Whitehall

Former England cricketer Freddie Flintoff has hit-out at David Haye in his 'Do You Know What?' autobiography after the retired heavyweight boxer threw punches at Jack Whitehall during a segment of 'A League of Their Own'.

During the 2013 episode, a then-retired Haye appeared after Flintoff told viewers he wasn't able to take part in the brutal battering of his of TV partner.

The comedian was put inside a purpose made punchbag, which was hung in the air. Haye then went full heavyweight on Whitehall and actually appeared to punch him in the throat.

Flintoff appeared jovial about the sketch whilst on air, but admits he felt the boxer's actions were disgusting.

"When Haye was a guest on A League of Their Own, he had beaten Jack Whitehall up, which I thought was disgusting," he said in the book, per The Mirror.

"The segment was meant to be a bit of fun, but they put Jack inside a heavy bag and Haye hammered him, even hit him in the head at one point.

"I was sat there fantasising about fighting him. He would have killed me, but I would have had a bloody good go."

But Whitehall is no stranger to the boxing world. He's famously joked about heavyweights Anthony Joshua, Wladimir Klitschko and of course David Haye himself, after he did - as Whitehall puts - punch him in the neck.

Flintoff's boxing career may not be as glistening as Haye's, but his win percentage far betters the former WBA heavyweight champion (Flintoff only fought once and won - but the stats don't lie).

Are Freddie's comments right?
