Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo get in the boxing ring for Portuguese TV advert


Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo are unquestionably two of the world’s best footballers.

However, you wouldn’t describe either of them as football hard men.

Ronaldo is built like a machine but, let’s be honest, he’s no fighter. And the same can be said of Neymar, who isn’t as big as Cristiano but is still ripped.

With this in mind, it was more than a little surprising to see the two superstars in the boxing ring together.

A video did the rounds on social media on Saturday evening, showing Neymar and Ronaldo facing off inside the ring.

Watch the video here…

We’re not sure who we’d back in that fight.

Probably Ronaldo on account of his superior height and weight advantage.

Ronaldo, 34, is 6ft 1in and weighs 84kg.

Neymar, on the other hand, has the age advantage (he’s only 27) but is only 5ft 9in and weighs 68kg.


Anyway, people on social media were wondering what on earth this was all about. Some even assumed it must be a ‘deep fake’.

But nope, it’s real.


We did a little digging and found out this is actually from a Portuguese TV advert, which was released last month.

Per The Sun, the football icons were promoting Meo, a Portuguese mobile network.

The full advert is a bit strange…

There are also other versions of the advert showing Neymar and Ronaldo having a table tennis match - except the bars are replaced with chopsticks because they’re too good.

It’s a bit of a shame that the boxing match isn’t entirely real.

We’d love to see the pair of them battling it out over 12 rounds.

Somebody get it arranged in the name of charity!
