Previously, we reported that the famous soccer coach Mircea Lucescu expressed doubts and dissatisfaction with UEFA's decision to allow the Kazakhstan national team to participate in the 2024 European Football Championship. He considers this decision unusual since Kazakhstan is geographically located in Central Asia, not in Europe.
Nevertheless, Kazakhstan showed good results in the qualifiers, scoring 18 points and defeating strong opponents. They have a chance to qualify through the Nations League playoffs, where they will first play against Greece and then, if successful, meet the winner of the Georgia - Luxembourg pair.
Also, boxers Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury will meet on February 17, 2024, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a fight for the title of the absolute world heavyweight champion.

Originally scheduled for December 23, the fight had to be postponed. Usyk and Fury also agreed on the possibility of a rematch after this bout. This fight will be historic, as it will be the first time all four titles among leading boxing organizations will be determined.
