Terry, who is Villa’s assistant manager, is reported to have ‘exchanged heated words’ with Forest No.2 Keane as tensions reached boiling point on Wednesday evening,

However, things calmed down quickly enough before anything serious came of the row.


But, this incident has got us thinking – who would win a boxing match between Chelsea legend Terry and Keane, the Manchester United icon.

Drivetime put this question to the masses, with a poll posted on Twitter asking who would be the victor if the pair got into a boxing ring for charity.

And Keane was winner by a resounding margin, with one person commenting: ‘Chelsea fans voting Terry. Normal people voting Keane.’

The reason many have for Keane’s emphatic win is not just his hard-man demeanour, but the fact he actually boxed in his youth.
