Rob Newbiggin, a 44-year-old British boxer, says he's being driven out of the town he loves after admitting he will undergo a sex-change operation.

According to the Southport Visiter report, Newbiggin will soon begin a new life as a woman known as Mercedes following the operation, but when the news broke in a daily tabloid newspaper, he lost all his friends. "I have lost every friend I have ever had in the world in this town," he said.

Newbiggin, who has sparred in the ring with former welterweight champion Ricky Hatton, claims that the tabloid made him out to be "some kind of freak."

"My friends don't want to know me. I've got people winding their windows down shouting abuse at me while I go for my run -- that's why we are having to relocate. I have to think about my kids," Newbiggin told the Visiter.:luvbed::Thinkingo:boxing:
