FORMER boxing promoter Frank Maloney is set to undergo a sex change.
The 61-year-old, who guided Lennox Lewis and Scott Harrison to world titles, now lives as a woman called Kellie.
The former promoter said: “I wasn’t born into the right body, I have always known I was a woman. I can’t keep living in the shadows.
“At this very moment I am preparing to live the rest of my life as a single person. I hope society will be open-minded. ”
Maloney announced his intention to call time on his 30-year career with immediate effect last October.
His decision brought an end to a colourful career which saw him guide Lewis to glory despite memorably being derided as a “mental midget” by US promoter Don King.
