Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has announced that David de Gea vs Roy Keane will take place this summer.
The news comes after Keane publicly called out the Man United goalkeeper at half-time of their match against Spurs.
While working as a pundit on Sky Sports, Keane slated De Gea after failing to keep out Steven Bergwijn’s shot.
While analysing a replay of Spurs’ opener, the ex-Man United captain stated: “I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper!
“I would be fighting him at half-time, I would be swinging punches at that guy.
“I wouldn’t even let him on the bus at the end of the match, he can get a taxi back to Manchester.
“He’s the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time.”
Man United’s unofficial spokesman Lee Satchell said: “David heard Roy’s comments at half time and was not happy at all.
“He got straight on the phone to Eddie Hearn and asked if he could arrange the fight to take place as soon as possible.
“Eddie and Matchroom agreed that they would promote the fight and now Wembley Stadium has been confirmed as the venue.
“To be honest, we were shocked that Matchroom were so keen to take the fight, but then we remembered that Eddie promoted KSI vs Logan Paul, so it makes sense that they’d promote absolutely anything.”
Keane is the early favourite according to the bookies and is rumoured to have been in camp for some time already, hence why he called out De Gea in the first place.
Hearn has just released a short statement on the fight, stating: “Ten ounce gloves, no headguards, someone’s getting knocked out.”
While Wembley will host the fight, a date has yet to be officially confirmed.
