This fight has been due for many years, but a date has finally been set at last. On 19th February, the two British welterweights will face off against each other at the AO Arena in Manchester. They have never faced each other in a single fight yet, so there’s a lot on the line for this one in terms of money, championships, and pride.

Rugby League World Cup (Rescheduled After Cancellation in 2021)
England will be hosting the Rugby League World Cup this year, but it’s more of a rescheduled 2021 event than a 2022 exclusive. Nonetheless, the Rugby League World Cup for Men and Women will keep you busy from 15th October to 19thNovember 2022.
The British Masters
Danny Willett at The Belfry will play host to the British Masters from 5thto8thMay2022. Will Richard Bland be able to repeat his performance and keep the trophy in England? We will find out for sure in May.
Major sporting events such as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 (21st November –18th December) and the ICC Women’s World Cup New Zealand (4th March – 3rd April) are not mentioned here because they will not be held in the UK. Nevertheless, English national teams will be participating in both events, so you won’t want to miss the action there either.
