    A classically trained British violinist is preparing to battle a world champion arm-wrestler and says regular bouts of the pub sport have sharpened his fiddle-playing.

    Liverpool violinist Daniel Axworthy, who took up arm-wrestling last year after beating a doorman in a contest for a bet, expects to face world bantamweight champion Steve Rogers in the 2004 "Arm Wars" contest at the end of May.

    Axworthy won a bronze medal in the sport in Switzerland last month.

    Axworthy, a classical session player and violin teacher, told Reuters arm-wrestling had made pieces easier to play by strengthening his grip on the fingerboard.
