The Fury-Klitschko re-match might just have confirmed the most epic sporting weekend ever


Bosses around Britain can expect very little productivity on Monday July 11.

Why? Because the weekend before could possibly be the most epic two days of sport for the whole of 2016… maybe ever?

Confirmation that Tyson Fury’s re-match against Wladimir Klitschko will take place on July 9 in Manchester has ensured an already sport-heavy weekend will be totally off the scale.

Here’s the list of sport that weekend. You might need a pen.

It’s the Euro 2016 final, the men’s and women’s Wimbledon finals, the British Grand Prix, the Tour de France, European Athletics Championships and, wait for it fight fans, Ireland’s UFC featherweight Conor McGregor will look to avenge his loss to Nate Diaz in Vegas on the same night as the Fury fight.

And we’ve not even mentioned the European Modern Pentathlon Championships in Bulgaria…

Safe to say everyone is already pretty excited.

The scramble for tickets to the Fury-Klitschko fight is going to be insane.

The news isn’t great for all sports fans though. Do you call this a diary malfunction?
