Fight fans can look forward to a massive week of wrestling, boxing and UFC as the likes of Tyson Fury, Brock Lesnar, Canelo Alvarez and Nate Diaz will all be in action.


There's not one but THREE huge events this week from the world of WWE, boxing and UFC.

On Thursday, WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel and this weekend sees Canelo face light-heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev at the MGM Grand while Jorge Masvidal takes on Diaz for the BMF title at Madison Square Garden.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' makes his competitive professional wrestling debut at Crown Jewel when he clashes with Braun Strowman.

Lesnar's also on the card as he welcomes former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez to the squared circle for the WWE Championship.
