July 9-10 shaping up to be the craziest weekend of sport ever

The announcement of a Tyson Fury/Wladimir Klitschko rematch means that July 9-10 could be the craziest weekend of sport Britain has ever seen. 

The feast of sporting action will see the year’s biggest tennis, boxing, mixed martial arts, motor racing and football events all taking place within the space of two days. 

Kick things off on Saturday afternoon at a leisurely pace with the women’s Wimbledon final before notching things up a gear and turning your attention to one of the most anticipated fights in recent memory. 

Tyson Fury will defend his heavyweight championship in a rematch versus Wladimir Klitschko on the Saturday night after recording a shock win over the Ukrainian in November 2015. 

Now that you’ve had your starter it’s time for the main course: UFC 200. The biggest event in mixed martial arts history goes down in the early hours of Sunday morning from the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas.

In the main event Conor McGregor will seek to avenge the only loss of his UFC career in a rematch versus Nate Diaz while in the co-main Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar throw down for the interim featherweight championship and the chance to get a shot at “The Notorious”. 

A third belt will be on the line when Miesha Tate makes her first bantamweight championship defence versus the Brazilian, Amanda Nunes.

With the UFC likely to finish around 6am you will have around seven hours sleep before the fun and games resume. 

Sunday afternoon begins rather serenely as we head back to SW19 for the men’s final, although you will have to change channel between games as the British Grand Prix will be going on at the same time. 

The weekend will conclude in magnificent fashion as the world’s attention turns to Paris for the final of Euro 2016. 

What a weekend!
