What weight class would Cristiano Ronaldo and Erling Haaland fight in?

With hand-to-hand combat not required in the sport of football, Cristiano Ronaldo and Erling Haaland can compete on the same field of play as the likes of Lionel Messi, without any problem.

However, despite their comparable skills on the pitch, in the world of boxing, as much as we’d like to see our favourite players battle it out, they’re separated into completely different weight classes.

In a testament to their powers of creativity, Best Gambling Sites have utilised Football Manager 23, to figure out who your favourite footballers would have to tango with in the ring.

Weighing in at a whopping 94KG, Haaland has the almighty task of competing in the heavyweight division. But with his formidable power and unrelenting will to win, he might have the mindset to spin Tyson Fury on his head.

Stepping down a division to cruiserweight, Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane would have to step up to the plate against heavy-hitting Aussie Jai Opetaia.


Sadly, while Messi is nowhere near big enough to set foot in the ring with the likes of Anthony Joshua, there’s a potential match-up that would have the selling power to far transcend anything the sporting world has ever seen.

Does anyone fancy watching the Argentinian take on Floyd Mayweather?
