Floyd Mayweather vs Conor Mcgregor, the fight we all thought we would probably never see is finally on! The official date is set for the 26th August 2017 and it will be in the boxing ring and not the Octagon. Although Mayweather is going almost certainly going to be the odds on favourite, you have to give Mcgregor a fighting chance. As we all know, when he hits guys the same size as him he tends to knock them out! Mayweather, the ring master that he is will be expected to outbox Mcgregor but as he ever faced anyone as unorthodox as Mcgregor? Probably not! That and the fact that Mayweather always seems to struggle with Southpaws, will give Mcgregor a good chance of an upset. Plus if he loses he will have the rumoured £78 million to commiserate with.

Lennox Lewis vs Razor Ruddock was billed as ‘the fight for the right’. The winner would go on to have a shot at the world title. Lewis was classed as the underdog, who had a chance if he could manage to avoid the big punches from Ruddock. He was expected to try to outbox Ruddock and probably aim to win on a points decision.
How wrong they were! Lewis absolutely destroys him in the second round! It has to be probably the best fight of Lewis’ career.
Lennox Lewis vs Shannon Briggs – Shannon Briggs takes some real big shots and he makes out they don’t hurt. The guy definitely has heart but you don’t mess around with Lennox Lewis like that and get away with it! If you do then you’re gonna go down and that’s exactly what happens to Briggs!

Manchester was taken over by rugby yesterday, with the Rugby Super Grand League final between Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors at Old Trafford, plus England vs Uruguay in the Rugby Union World Cup at the Etihad.
However, the banter between the various sets of fans wasn’t all good natured as a mass brawl between rugby league fans was captured on camera.
Supporters of rival teams Leeds and Wigan got into quite the scrap in one of the beer gardens in the city with the footage, uploaded to YouTube, showing how quickly this all escalated.
There were no reports of any injuries and it’s unclear what triggered the fight. Maybe someone told them football was a better sport?
Leeds Rhinos went on to win the game 22-20 against Wigan Warriors, which probably didn’t do much to improve the mood of some of these fans…
