He recently triumphed in his first singles match and now Norwich City legend Grant Holt is to headline a wrestling event at Carrow Road.

The professional event will take place at the football club on Sunday June 2 and tickets are already on sale.

The former Canaries forward won the match by default earlier this month after his opponent was disqualified when a trio of other wrestlers stormed the ring and gave the 37-year-old some punishment.

Following the match Holt, who already had a taste of success after winning the WAW 40-man rumble earlier this year, tweeted: 'Nice black eye and fat lip from last nights wrestling debut. Glad to get the win.'

Tickets for the event at Carrow Road in June are £15 and Norwich City season ticket holders can get reduced tickets for £10 for adults and £5 for under-18s.
