Then again, we also have a possibility of a title-fight in the Premier League on the same day.
Manchester City will be hosting Leicester City and with how the start of the Premier League has gone, these two should definitely be fighting for the title.
With Leicester currently one point ahead of Manchester City with just over a third of the season played, who knows who will be ahead by February 22
No matter if you're a Boxing fan or a Football fan, you have to be ready and excited for February 22.
