Sri Lanka to face Ronnie O’Sullivan on Mayweather vs McGregor undercard


Ronnie O'Sullivan to take on Sri Lanka

The undercard for the cross-sport dual between Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Connor McGregor has been announced, with the Sri Lankan cricket team set to face five-time World Snooker Champion, Ronnie O’Sullivan.

What they will face each other in has yet to be announced, with the only clues being given that it will be played out of “best of 5” sets.

O’Sullivan, the bookies early favourite has been quoted as saying “It’s going to be the biggest sporting event of all time and I’m delighted to be part of it.

“I play with balls and a stick, and so do they, so the differences between our disciplines are only very small, to be honest.”

With a few months to go until the fight, rumours of other hybrid events have already taken over, with Paula Radcliffe calling out Rory McIlroy on Twitter.

Who will win? Certainly only us as spectators.
