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.
