Andy Lee has confirmed that we're getting a legendary sporting weekend this September

We cannot wait for the third weekend in September.

Saturday September 18 and Sunday September 19 will be obscenely glorious for sports fans. Don't make any plans for that weekend that don't include sitting on your couch in front of the TV with some unhealthy snacks and an ice cold beverage of some sort.

We'll have the All-Ireland football final, Chelsea v Arsenal and Ireland v Canada in the Rugby World Cup.

That would be more than enough on its own but a tweet from Andy Lee earlier has just given us yet another mouthwatering sporting event to look forward to.

Lee v Saunders in Thomond Park? I think we can get on board with that. Title fights are always special but there is an extra bit of electricity when they are held in a great outdoor venue. No doubt Limerick will put on a great show for the tenacious middleweight.
