Following Man City’s 3-1 victory over United at the Etihad, the conversation soon switched to boxing.

Two-time heavyweight world champion Joshua is preparing to face Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on Friday.

But the 34-year-old British star, who came face-to-face with WBC title holder Tyson Fury’s dad John this week, took time out to make a special brief appearance on the show.

And he was asked directly about who would come out on top in a boxing bout between ex-United captain Keane, 52, and former City defender Richards, 35.

“That’s a great question,” replied Joshua. Well let’s look at the tale of the tape.

“You’ve got Micah Richards, a big guy who looks like a natural heavyweight, solid.

“But, then you’re talking about Roy Keane, the one and only.

“The man when you are talking about that smoke and life, I think he has had a bit of amateur experience…”


Joshua then concluded: “If I was to toss a coin, I would probably say that it would probably land on Micah but you know when a coin just bounces and flips a few times, it’ll land back on Roy Keane.

“I think Roy Keane is gonna do the job.”

The footage then panned back to the studio, where Keane and Richards were sat alongside each other chuckling.

The pair shook hands before Irishman Keane said: “I wish I could believe what he was saying. I think Micah would take me very, very easily.”

Richards then asked his pal what he weighed as he revealed that he tipped the scales at 16.5st.

Keane said he weighed 12.5st, to which Richards said: “I’d eat you for lunch!”

The ex-midfielder then acknowledged that the former full-back ”would be favourite” before the pair amicably agreed that they would both happily take a draw.
