Nacho Novo turns to boxing as Rangers hero to fight TikTok star at Hydro main event

Rangers hero Nacho Novo will ditch the football boots for the boxing gloves as he gets set to fight a TikTok star in Glasgow later this year.

It was confirmed today that the Ibrox former striker will battle it out with Scottish social media personality Caz Milligan at the OVO Hydro on Saturday August 10. Novo said: "Twenty years later, I'm fighting my biggest fan. Well, after what I have been passed through - lots of problems in my life, health problems, whatever happens in life you have to try push yourself to do whatever you want to do.

"I am excited for this event, I hope everybody will come and support me and I hope people enjoy."

Gers-daft Milligan - who has more than 2.4million followers on TikTok - added: "Twenty years ago Novo was my highest goal scorer on FIFA. Twenty years later I am now fighting Nacho Novo. I'm doing this for the kids who have doubted, for those who have got a dream.

"I was once a kid with Novo 10 printed on my back. But now I am going to have the referee counting to 10 with Nacho Novo on his back." Tickets are available from £47.10 with further matches on the fight card still to be announced.
