British music mogul Simon Cowell was once a budding sportsman - with a promising career in boxing ahead of him.
The American Idol judge - who joined a star-studded crowd to cheer on boxers Joe Calzaghe and Bernard Hopkins in Las Vegas on Saturday night (19Apr08) - ended his fighting dream when he realised he was too vain.
He says, "I love boxing. I was a boxer until I got vain."
