BOXING champion Mark Hobson is stepping in to a new guise - as a singer.
The Huddersfield sporting celebrity will belt out his version of hit single Is This The Way to Amarillo? at a benefit night for two severely injured sportsmen.
Hobson, the British and Commonwealth cruiserweight king, will sing at the town's George Hotel on Saturday night.
Proceeds from the evening of entertainment will go to rugby league players Danny Scott and Matt King.
Both Danny, 23, who played with amateur side Moldgreen, and Matt, 17, who was with the London Broncos academy, suffered serious spinal injuries on the pitch.
They will require constant care for years to come.
The night in support of the pair has been organised by former Fartown hooker Ian Muir.
Now a singer with the stage name Ian Stewart, he is hoping to raise more than £1,000.
It's part of a series of regular benefits he holds for different causes.
Ian said: "These are two needy guys who have had severe life-changing injuries.
"They need all the support they can get."
The night at the George will start at 8pm on Saturday and admission is free.
There will be a disco and an auction and Ian will sing songs from his latest CD.
He's roped in former Fartown prop Ian van Bellen to be Elvis Presley in a Stars In Our Eyes section.
The auction will include a ball signed by the current Chelsea squad and two boxing gloves signed by Mark Hobson.
