Hollywood hardman Russell Crowe could have a second career lined up as a professional fighter, according to his boxing trainer ANGELO DUNDEE.

Dundee trained the OSCAR-winning actor for his role as depression-era hero JIM BRADDOCK in the forthcoming Ron Howard film Cinderella Man.

Dundee, who trained Muhammad Ali and worked with Will Smith in biopic ALI, enthuses, "I'm tellin' ya, the kid has a great left hook.

"He could have been a fighter, sure he could. He loves boxing."
