Sports matches will always be popular anywhere in the world, no matter the region. Every year, there are one or more matches taking place to determine the champion in that sport. Examples include football tournaments, boxing, swimming, wrestling matches, etc. An example of a professional sportsman is Australian professional boxer, Jed Anthony Ariens.
Jed Ariens is a registered fighter in Australia. He got into boxing at 15 years old and developed himself professionally in 2018. He has had remarkable success in the world of sports. Here are the various sporting activities Jed Ariens says will rock the year 2024
17 February — Boxing Match Between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk
Just like how Jed Anthony Ariens fights to win and defend his title, other boxers do, too. The next on the list are Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. It is a match that has been anticipated so much by their fans. The showdown should have happened last year but was changed to a later date. Many people speculated that Tyson’s defeat in the hands of Francis Ngannou last year led to the change.
Why did Tyson lose the match?
Tyson lost when the judges made a split vote to crown Francis the winner of their match. He found it embarrassing and had to stop boxing to regroup. Thankfully, his fans understood and encouraged him. They even cited an example of Jed Anthony Ariens who lost some matches, didn’t give up, and won later.
Besides, they argued that Francis is among the best boxers in the boxing world, making him a worthy opponent. This cheered Tyson up, and he promised to fight Francis again in the same country they previously fought, Saudi Arabia.
February 11 — Super Bowl L III

January 13 to February 11 — African Cup of Nations (AFCON)
This year’s AFCON championship will be the 34th to be held ever since its inception. It’s one of the largest football matches in Africa with many African nations participating to qualify for a chance to play. It was initially scheduled in mid-2023 in Ivory Coast but was shifted to early 2024. They shifted the date because the weather conditions in June and July in Ivory Coast aren’t conducive for holding an event.
People’s disappointment with the date change
For people anticipating the event in 2023, shifting the date was a disappointment. But for Egyptian player Mohamed Salah who got injured, it was a chance for him to heal well and play. He got injured from participating in the qualifying match between Egypt and Senegal. Other players whose names were part of the African players playing are; Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen, Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi, Cameroon’s Andre Onana, and so on.
There is no permanent loser or winner when it comes to sports. This has been proven by Jed Anthony Ariens, a boxer who lost some matches and won others. Hence, sports enthusiasts are eager to see who is going to win in this year’s various sports tournaments. They also want to see who is going to retain their championships and who will lose.
