It’s a knock-out!

Haye v Chisora, Khan v Garcia, Triple H v Undertaker…three huge fights (OK, so maybe the last one isn’t true but surely would have brought back some great memories). So, it was a pretty big weekend for boxing, which reminded me of this joker from a while back, this video is definitely worth a watch for anyone who believes in Karma.

While boxing reaped the rewards from one of the biggest ‘build up’s’ to a fight, Le Tour de France suffered at the hands of some protesters who apparently work for a carpet shop after they punctured 28 tyres with nails thrown on the road. Not sure what a carpet shop would have against cyclists?!

And how could I not mention the Olympic disaster…don’t need to say much more than that do I. Not sure how I would go about hiring 10,000 staff members in three months.
