Conor McGregor has shown his support for Katie Taylor ahead of her undisputed lightweight clash in New York.
While the world will be waiting to see Anthony Joshua defend his heavyweight titles against Andy Ruiz Jr in his US debut, that is not the only championship action taking place at Madison Square Garden.
For Derby, it is another season in the Championship – where they will lock horns with rivals Leeds United once again.
And it seems as though their rivalry has become even more personal.
And following the full-time whistle, Leeds immediately posted a brutal Tweet to Lampard.
They quote-Tweeted Rams fan and Sports Breakfast listener Niall Horan’s post with the following caption: “Hopefully you performed better than @dcfcofficial! See you next season! #StopCrying.”
In the semi-final first leg between the two sides, the Whites supporters used Oasis’ ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ to sing ‘All of our spies are hidden away… Stop crying Frank Lampard’, in reference to the ‘spygate’ scandal.
Leeds were fined £200,000 after being caught spying on Derby earlier in the season and, asked if the song bothers him, Lampard said: “No, of course not, it is good fun,” though he did manage a little jab at his rivals.
“I think being a Chelsea player there was always a rivalry with Leeds. I didn’t play them that much because we were in the Premier League, but that comes with it.

“I certainly will take the song all day long. My worry is what the players do on the pitch.”
While it remains to be seen if Lampard will stay at Pride Park after failing to secure promotion, fans will surely be hoping the former England midfielder does so as to give fans more excitement.
The second leg of the semi-final at Elland Road produced one of the greatest games in Play-Off history.
Derby County made sure Leeds knew they were beaten.
In the Elland Road changing room following a brilliant 4-2 win, the players sang a song created by Leeds fans to mock manager Frank Lampard, which makes numerous references to the ‘spygate’ scandal that erupted earlier in the season.
And on Twitter, along with Derby fan and talkSPORT regular, Niall Horan, players laughed at their Championship rivals.
Mason Mount and Martyn Waghorn were among those who tweeted ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with W’, while Horan tweeted United between him and his beloved Rams, they’d played more times at Wembley than them in the last 12 years!
