Cricket returns to its traditional format of play in the day with the Second Test between England and West Indies which starts at Headingly on Friday. England won the first match by an innings and 209 runs it took less than three days to get the job done. West Indies lost 19 wickets on what turned out to be the final day and only the weather can prevent England taking a 2-0 lead in the three match series. West Indies are a shadow of their former selves and a drubbing over the remainder of the summer looks on the cards.
The circus that is the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor takes place early on Saturday morning. This brings together a boxer well past his best and one of the best mixed martial arts fighters in the world. The ring craft and experience of Mayweather makes him a good bet event at long odds-on to win this farce of a fight. The venue is Las Vegas which is appropriate because this occasion is more style over substance but one Mayweather can win on points. He is 11 years older than McGregor and can show that boxing is an art and MMA is about brutal power.
