Former MP may step into ring
11:00am Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Didcot
DIDCOT: Wrestling promoters are hoping former Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik, above, will show up at a bout in the town on Friday.
Mr Opik caused a stir on Friday at Welshpool, in Wales, when he got into the ring for a tussle with 18-stone wrestler Kade Callous.
Promoter Alan Ravenhill said: “We’re running an event at Didcot Town Football Club and we are confident Lembit will be there. I’m not quite sure why he’s doing this but it’s getting good publicity.”
The show at the football club in Bowmont Water, Ladygrove, starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10.
