Awkward question for former world champion boxer - do you moisturise?
Of all the gormless questions I have posed over the years, this was probably my worst.
Clinton Woods, former world champion and hard as nails Sheffield bloke - are you wearing moisturiser?
It is hardly journalistically ground-breaking.
Or actually, all that relevant.
I was interviewing the former IBF light heavyweight banger at a Magna Centre event to raise funds for Herol Bomber Graham, who has been ill.
I couldn't help noticing the glisten on big Clinton's face - and before I could stop myself had asked the question.
Luckily, he saw the funny side of my impertience and no stiff jab or crisp was uppercut delivered.
In fact what a sport he is - who else would admit they cried after they had just sold their holiday caravan?
