Boxing fans all have their favoured fighters. We follow them and cheer them on. Often they become stars transcending the sport itself. Contemporaries may think of the likes of Muhammad Ali and Tyson Fury. But even the Ancients had their pugilist heroes. This is the story of Diagoras of Rhodes.

The anticipated bout between two titans went all 6 rounds and was decided by unanimous decision. Thor stood as the victor of the fight but the bitter rivalry seems far from over, despite some show of good sportsmanship from both sides.
Two friends turned rivals will meet for what has been dubbed ‘the heaviest boxing match in history.’ At the recent weigh-ins Thor reached a weight of 152kg, while Eddie will enter the ring at 142.2kg. The two strongmen will settle their personal differences this Saturday.
